The article reports on the use of public meetings as an opportunity for planners and the public to discuss issues related to land use and city planning. When planners reveal their plan and present the map to the public for the first time, the people in the audience look at the map only to find the things that most concern them. However, according to experienced planners who have conducted public meetings, getting participants to stop venting and start communicating is a worthy goal. In this article, the author offers tips for encouraging participation based on her experience as a transportation planner.
