IIn preservation, and even more so in the very profession itself,
plannign refers to specific such as Urban Planning, Regional Planning,
Comprehensive Planning — all sorts of planning specific to
the profession, but, frequently (and especially historically), with
little congruity, or usefulness to the process of planning, the
capacity of decisionmakers, and the involvement of stakeholders.
Keep this in mind when looking through the "planning toolbox".
"Winner write our history." Do planners write our future?
Who plans? Why? Look at various perscpectives (ideologies, etc.)
of planning. Are the "planning" futures in conguity with
the "big-scope", more global, futures.
