Comprehensive Planning: Is There a Relationship between Committee Design and Subsequent Outcome: A Baseline Survey
AbstractThe design, structure and participants in the comprehensive planning process may be material to determining a plan’s success. Recognition of a relationship between process and outcome prompted the development of a state-wide online survey of Wisconsin planning professionals. This survey, provided to a group of Wisconsin planners who recently completed comprehensive plans, seeks to link the creation of committees with the subsequent support for the plan. The survey investigated structural aspects of the community plan, including committee composition, funding, consultants role, time frame, and history, as well as the perceptions of community input and cohesiveness. The survey continues with a look at implementation and change. As is common in the literature, “buyin” is crucial to the success of any plan. The model then attempts to link this concept of “buy-in” with outcome.
