Published by Jerry Paffendorf
At the end of April 2013 the Detroit City Planning & Development released this draft document:

"The City of Detroit Community Planning Guidebook provides a framework for how the City of Detroit government (the City) can support communities as they plan for the future of their neighborhoods. It outlines best practices for the creation of comprehensive community plans and provides guidance to communities on how to incorporate community plans into City policy and regulations. Communities, when given appropriate support and resources from the City, are best able to identify and address their own vision and needs within the framework of citywide goals and policies. Since each community has unique issues and opportunities, the process described in this guidebook allows each community to tailor the approach to its specific needs. The suggested approaches are adapted from proven planning practices that aim to efficiently address the complexity of planning issues while optimizing citizen participation. While a full community planning effort may not be the right approach for all communities depending on specific objectives, this guidebook can still provide helpful tools and case studies to help communities create shorter term action strategies or organize around a specific issue."
