Planning Magazine Article

"Inside Tent Cities" was published in this months issue of Planning magazine.  I wrote the article to introduce the issue to professional planners around the country with hopes of improving relations between local governments and these informal communities.

"As planners, we should make a greater effort to include the needs and concerns of members of tent cities in our plans. At the same time, we must be careful not to further isolate these communities or to infringe too far on their autonomy in the process."

It is a difficult balance to find.
