Community development planning consists of a public participatory and usually interactive form

of town or neighborhood planning and design in which diverse community members (often termed
stakeholders) contribute toward formulation of the goals, objectives,
planning, fund/resource identification and direction, planned project implementationsand
reevaluation of documented local planning policy. It is a logical bottom-up evolution of (formerly
top-down) regional, city and urban planning in an era of plateaued or diminishing public resources,
increasing local burdens and responsibilities and public activism. It often promotes public/private
partnership as a means to harness physical development activities in support of community-defined
goals.[1] At a minimum, it seeks community consensus for proposed allocations of scarce resources
among competing demands. In more vigorous application, community members access a full gamut
of planning tools, shaping and being shaped by shared understanding of a complex community
information base, directly informing and guiding local plan content, influencing resulting development
budgets, projects and thus future infrastructure and land uses, as well as helping coordinate the
work of overlapping jurisdictions, levels of government, internal and adjacent communities and
various providers, such as business associations, utilities and schools.
