Social planning, community development planning, formative stages, growing pains, new planning processes, coordination, distrust, misunderstanding.


Social planning is a by-product of the recent trend toward comprehensive community development planning. It is still in its formative stages and is therefore experiencing the growing pains characteristic of most new planning processes, including poor coordination, distrust and misunderstanding. Added to these difficulties is a second deterrent to proper social planning, namely, an increasing demand to react quickly to problems and make decisions without waiting for input from planners.
