Abstract and Keywords

This article analyzes whether urban planners should serve as handmaidens to enable old boys' deal making or act as facilitative leaders to stage power-sensitive, results-oriented public deliberations. It explores how urban planning can communicatively empower or disempower stakeholders, include or exclude issues, recognize or dismiss values and interests, and craft public-serving outcomes or squander public opportunities. The article describes an urban-transportation planning case and considers planning in smaller communities.

Keywords: urban planners, facilitative leaders, public deliberations, urban planning, transportation planning, public opportunities
