Webinar Wednesday: Off the Shelf and Into Action…

June 1, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Off the Shelf and Into Action, Creating an Implementable Comprehensive Plan

Ten years have passed since the implementable comprehensive plan approach was introduced. Interest continues to grow. RFPs from Pennsylvania communities regularly ask for an implementable plan. This webinar will provide a refresher on the implementable plan approach. It will describe how to create a plan that is more likely to be implemented, and highlight case studies and lessons learned in recent implementable comprehensive plans.

The webinar will discuss five keys for an implementable plan, each including specific suggestions for a plan’s content, organization, process steps, and participants. The webinar will take a closer look at how the five keys have been applied in recent comprehensive plans to better involve elected officials and the public, undertake problem-solving work sessions, design workable action plans, and create capacity to implement the plan. The webinar will challenge planners. Are they driven by helping a community achieve its aspirations and address problems and needs or by the exercise of writing a book? Do they focus on the real issues a community is facing or a perceived statutory template?

Webinar presenters Denny Puko and Jim Pashek are pioneers of the implementable plan approach. Ideas they will present come from their new book Off the Shelf and Into Action, How to Create an Implementable Comprehensive Plan.
