POLICY AND PLANNING CONSIDERATIONS

PREPARATION AND COMPREHENSIVE PLANS ARE NECESSARY TO SATISFY THE HUMAN VALUES AND GOALS OF THE COMMUNITY. BETTER MEANS MUST BE FOUND TO IDENTIFY SUCH GOALS AND VALUES. RECENT DEVELOPMENTS OF THE DESIGN TEAM APPROACH AND EFFORTS AT TOTAL TRANSPORTATION PLANNING ARE DISCUSSED. PEOPLE NEED TO IDENTIFY WITH THE COMMUNITY, IF THEY ALSO WANT TO BE FREE FROM FEELING THAT THEIR LIVES ARE INSTITUTIONALIZED. OVERPLANNING AND MASSIVE AND SUDDEN CHANGE RESULTING IN HUMAN DISLOCATION CAN CAUSE SUCH DEHUMANIZATION. THE OBJECTIVES OF OVERPLANNING ARE TO PROVIDE AN ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THE INDIVIDUAL, THE FAMILY, AND THE GROUP CAN DEVELOP ACCORDING TO THEIR DESIRES AND EXPECTATIONS. A NEED IS INDICATED TO RESOLVE THE PROBLEMS OF INTERGOVERNMENTAL RELATIONS AND RESPONSIBLITIES FOR JOINT DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS AND FOR PROJECTS INCORPORATING MULTIPLE USE OF TRANSPORTATION RIGHTS-OF-WAY. THE PROBLEMS THAT EXIST BETWEEN ZONING ORDINANCES AND MULTIPLE-USE PROJECTS ARE DESCRIBED. MULTIPLE-USE PROJECTS MAY REQUIRE A RECONSIDERATION OF CURRENT ZONING PROVISIONS. FOR ORDERLY DEVELOPMENT OF LAND IT IS NECESSARY TO FIND SOME TECHNIQUE THAT WILL MAKE ZONING LESS SENSITIVE TO A CHANGE DESIRED BY SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS.
