Planning & Zoning 202: Public Choices, Problems and Decisions (CM | 6.0)

November 7, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This class addresses the critical role of public officials in a democratic society, the core values underlying public problems and choices, and the reasons why we use boards, councils, and commissions to make public choices rather than individuals. This class engages participants in exploring:

  • Why we have government and the government we have
  • The visions and values that define the public good
  • Conflicts that arise in seeking this good, and choices we face in deciding how to resolve these conflicts
  • How public leaders can “solve” public problems and make democratic decisions
  • Public leadership as a normative enterprise and the leadership implications for those who would lead on behalf of the public good
