Passing along a thought….

“For planning to become relevant it needs to find creative and relevant
solutions to complex issues. It entails political savvy, insight into the space economy of
the city, and a literacy that enables planners to engage with the many actors that
contribute to the ongoing evolution of urban space. It is a tall order, and it starts with a
paradigm shift that moves away from physical determinist and control-centered
approaches to ones based on values of inclusivity, multiplicity, and sustainability.”

– Jaffe, 2011.
