The Comprehensive Planner: Taking a Systems Perspective Webcast

March 10, 2017



March 10 – Northern New England Chapter – The Comprehensive Planner: Taking a Systems Perspective – Speakers: Christopher Parker, AICP and Steve Whitman, AICP


Steve Whitman and Chris Parker will explore the many problems facing communities of all sizes, and the underlying issue of ecosystem services. They will explore how thinking holistically and using a systems perspective can provide a new way forward for communities. While planning documents may take a systems perspective, land use regulations seldom do. This integrated approach provides for the regeneration of lost ecosystem services, and the resulting projects will help your community become more adaptive and resilient over time. Case study examples will be shared to highlight how to apply this approach, and to serve as a call to action so more planners become part of this collaborative effort.
