SYSTEM PLANNING "DO'S AND DON'TS" FOR SMALL CITIES

Some critical points for system planning for small and medium-sized communities are discussed--(a) don't overorganize, (b) don't overdocument, (c) don't be too sophisticated, (d) don't demand stereotyped analyses, (e) don't impede transportation with too many social programs, and (f) don't overregulate. It is emphasized that the need for planning in urban areas is not less in smaller areas but the procedures used in satisfying the needs are different. (Author)
