Communities are changing fast: ethnic minority populations are growing; home ownership is falling; the number of people per household is going up; and salaries are going down. According to Marc Brenman and Thomas W. Sanchez, the planning field is largely unprepared for these fundamental shifts. In "Planning as if People Matter" the authors provide practical solutions to make communities more livable for residents of all races, ages, and income levels. The book addresses topics such as stakeholder participation, disaster response, new technologies, and equity metrics. Unlike many academic treatments, it offers real-world reforms to improve the planning process and promote social justice.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"[...] this book is a challenge to the planning profession and a call for much needed examination of the underlying purpose of urban planning."
--Journal of Planning Education and Research
"Social justice is one of those topics that are more honored in theory than in practice. Planning as if People Matter is an attempt to change that....They take up a wide range of topics--demographics, ethics, diversity, public participation, communications technologies--and conclude by suggesting a number of 'interventions' for social justice."--Planning
