A comprehensive experience in comprehensive planning : an honors thesis (HONRS 499)
In the year of 2005, I was able to participate in the production of two comprehensive plans for the cities of New Carlisle and Greenwood, Indiana. From these two experiences I was able to accumulate a broad knowledge in the field of comprehensive planning. This thesis is not only a compilation of my experiences, but a medium to further the knowledge and understanding of the planning process and comprehensive planning. By going through the multiple steps necessary in producing a comprehensive plan and giving examples from the two comprehensive plans I collaborated on, I hope to inform the public about comprehensive plans and how the field of urban planning can better a community.
