Visit Our New Blog:
In the past thirty years, the Thoreau Institute has critiqued well over one hundred forest plans, park plans, transportation plans, and urban plans. We have consistently found that the plans are flawed, and when implemented they produce disastrous results.
The problem is with the idea of planning itself. Our new web log, The Antiplanner, promotes the repeal of federal and state planning laws and the closure of state and local planning departments. The blog will show why planning fails, document planning disasters, comment on planning news, and present the latest research on public lands, urban areas, and transportation.
From now on, most updates to this web site will take place on the blog. New research papers and other useful documents will be accessible via the blog. Your comments on the blog are welcome; your first comment requires that you register and will be moderated; all later comments will be immediately posted.
