The Center disseminates applied research to practitioners, communities, and students. We offer communities the opportunity to tap into world-class research and innovation, from strategic and master plan to grant writing and project management.
Strategic Planning is a Center's core competency
Many of the Center's projects are strategic planning. Because of the rapid scale or strategic planning, it can be a very cost effective way of helping communities create a vision, identify their values, consider their goals and objectives, and advance specific projects. Strategic planning can even be a lower cost way to kickoff a larger master planning process.
The American Planning Association will be publishing the Center's guidance on strategic planning for communities and organizations in 2024.
