Planning commissioners guide their communities. But who guides the commissioners? This essential handbook points them in the right direction.

Preparing for commission meetings
Reviewing development plans
Inviting productive public input
Steering clear of ethical dilemmas
As a bonus, the book is packed with resources including a glossary of planning terms, a list of training resources, and the American Planning Association's Statement of Ethical Principles in Planning. Put your community on the path to a better future. Pick up The Planning Commissioners Guidetoday.
