An old saying among planning professionals is that if you don't plan, it's planning to fail what you're actually doing. This dilemma is always faced by the communities. If the community in which you work, play, and life doesn't have a plan for their future, what may eventually happen is that the community will fail to adapt to change and take advantage of opportunities.

The notion of comprehensive planning is closely linked to communities ' financial prosperity. A detailed plan may be an instrument to plan a local community's future development or decrease. Most importantly, it is possible to use an extensive plan to tackle a community's constant change and evolution. Comprehensive plans are sometimes referred to as land-use plans — they often deal with land-use problems. In many instances, extensive plans are ready to tackle problems of compatibility between different land uses, natural resource management and conservation, identification and conservation of land and structures of historical significance and appropriate planning for infrastructure requirements. Comprehensive plans are also used in other cases to tackle problems linked to schools, recreation, and housing.

Comprehensive Process of Planning

A thorough plan should be a vision in the future of what a community will be. A community-wide effort should be the method of creating this plan. In delineating this vision, all interest groups should play a role. A timeline for execution should be created along with specific goals and objectives. A timeline for execution should be created along with specific goals and objectives. The contents of a comprehensive plan may vary from community to community, but the following elements should be included in most cases:

Land use (existing and planned)

Demographics (existing and planned)

Accommodation

Facilities

Education

Leisure

Travel

The process's first stage is to collect all accessible information on these subjects. A process of involvement of people should also be created.

Robert Bell started his craft, interesting enough, in the U.S. Navy, serving at sea but most importantly as an administrative aide to Commander and Chief US Space Command. In this capacity, he fine-tuned logical thinking, strategic thinking, attention to detail, and the inter-relationship of important matters.

After 10 years of military service in 1989 he became a land use planner for a county government in Oregon where he immersed himself in the policies, procedures, and technical details of land use in a very environmentally conscious state.
