Assignment 4: Planning Tools Application

Through the course of this semester a number of planning tools have been presented: Comprehensive planning, Zoning, public involvement, GIS, NEPA, public health impact assessments, capital improvement programing, housing development, and transportation planning.  See the syllabus if you have questions about what is considered a tool. 

Consider the problem of homelessness along the Wasatch Front, discuss how planning tools could be best used to help analyze the underlying problems and present potential solutions.  Assuming the legislature allocated $100M to help alleviate the problem, how could these funds best be utilized?  What would the anticipated impacts be?  Alternatively you can choose a different topic from the Envision Utah, Your Utah Your Future, list and consider similar questions:

  • Agriculture
  • Air Quality
  • Disaster Resilience
  • Education
  • Energy
  • Housing and Cost of Living
  • Jobs and Economy
  • Public Lands
  • Recreation
  • Transportation and Communities
  • Water

The paper can be up to 8-9 pages.  Feel free to include graphics or other materials to help illustrate points you are making.

Further key questions to consider:

  • What is the underlying problem? Market availability, supply, demand, etc.
  • What research tools could be applied to better understand the problem?
  • Why is the recommended tool the best?
  • How long would it take to apply the recommended tool?
  • How can the planning tools discussed help provide more information to decision makers?
  • Are there ways to present information to the public and include them in the decision making process?
