There are so many different kinds of small towns, that they almost defy categorization. But most small towns do share one characteristic that affects planning: smaller budgets. This means planning commissions usually have few (if any) staff to rely on — and, instead, commissioners must educate themselves about a wide range of planning issues.
We hope that the Planners Web & Planning Commissioners Journal can serve as a valuable educational supplement for small town planning commissioners. While many articles & postings under other topic headings on our site will be helpful, those listed below may be of particular interest.
