Components of Planning

  • Education

    Education is a major expenditure for local governments, and the quality of schools impacts the community it serves in many ways. In the followings sections we will examine many measures of the school corporations status.

  • Economy and Labor Market

    The economy and labor market section looks into regional and local economies including their labor markets. The indicators are chosen carefully to present a snapshot of the characteristics and size of the local economy and the labor force. Additionally, qualitative aspects of economy such as poverty and economic diversity are also included in this study.

  • Governance

    Decisions about a communities future may be governed by several agencies and bodies. Local governments, regulatory agencies, and individual land owners can all effect how land is used. The amount of funding available largely determines the programs and services available to the community.

  • Transportation and Mobility

    Transportation is about movement of people, goods, and services, which affects economic growth and settlement patterns of the communities. Connectivity, accessibility, and mobility can enhance competitiveness of any community. While connectivity can mean physical connections and linkages to other cities, states, and other countries; accessibility shows the ease of availing any goods or service as well as the ease of movement. Mobility is all about the art of moving people and goods.

  • Environment and Natural resources

    Natural resource-based planning is a process that identifies critical natural resources, evaluates potential impacts to these resources from proposed land use changes, and identifies practical strategies that can reduce the impacts on natural resources from land use change. Through this process, communities can effectively protect their valuable natural resources, such as farmland, forests, open spaces, and wildlife habitat, and reduce the fragmentation of lands while still accommodating growth in their community.

  • Land use/Land cover

    Land use is defined as human-oriented uses of land such as low density residential, high density residential, commercial, institutional, industrial, parks, forest, and agriculture. Combined with other elements of the inventory transportation, population, and housing we can more fully understand the complex relationships occurring within the community and begin to see future opportunities and constraints that will influence future development.
