SELECTING EFFECTIVE CITIZEN PARTICIPATION TECHNIQUES

In recent years much of the discussion of citizen participation has focused on describing individual techniques. Several efforts have been made to collect and synthesize this material. These efforts have mostly been in the area of transportation planning and have usually been encyclopedic. Typically these works have suggested selecting techniques through elaborate, interactive processes using classification schemes with up to nine dimensions. This paper tries to summarize that information and provide a simple framework for using it. Transportation planning is used as a specific example, but the framework and summary information can equally be applied to other types of planning.
