This 2-course bundle provides students access to both courses in the Texas Citizen Planner Program at a discount. Each unit includes reading materials, case studies, and engaging instruction from planning leaders, practitioners, and researchers. Planning FoundationsHow do communities and local officials use the planning powers of local government to improve neighborhoods, promote economic development, preserve open space, and protect public safety? We will cover development and placemaking issues concerning sprawl, smart growth, and new urbanism through an exploration of the planning process to help local officials better understand their planning options and impacts. Community Planning for HazardsIn this online course, you will hear first-person perspectives about strategic approaches other Texas communities have used to link risk management with their ongoing community planning and vision. The art of good planning is about injecting long-term considerations into near-term actions. Communities that integrate hazard mitigation principles and factor long-term risks into their existing plans stand to make their communities more resilient and less prone to disasters. Each unit includes reading materials, case studies, and engaging instruction from planning leaders, practitioners, and researchers.
