Here’s a piece I wrote on the myth of public participation in planning decisions here in San Francisco.

As soon as Planetizen posted it I got an email from the “Supervisor of Public Consultation, City of Toronto” to tell me that it is the same there.  I wonder if there is a good working model for bringing the real public into city planning – and what kind of city results from it.
