The article discusses about the relationship between economic development and city planning. Too often, planners defer to their city's economic development department or the local chamber of commerce, or give the nod to the local redevelopment agency, private industry council, visitors and convention bureau, or downtown merchants association. No matter what the economic development activity occurring in a particular community, planners can be involved in some capacity, because of their broad knowledge of what it takes to create and sustain healthy communities as well as their ability to gather and analyze the necessary information. When planners and other economic development professionals work together, a more cohesive, sustainable project is likely. INSETS: Farm to Market;Rediscovering Vitality.
