Purpose: critique a ‘planning science’ problem implicit in blueprint


Project 2: Plan Critique. Processes and Practices.


Purpose: critique a ‘planning science’ problem implicit in Blueprint Denver (above). This could address any of the topics raised.

Choose an issue in Blueprint Denver. Review in depth the ‘planning science’ literature relevant to your selected issue, including (1) at least 5 articles in the peer-reviewed literature and (2) additional technical material derived from the web. Write a brief technical report addressing at least the following questions segmented into two parts: a ‘critique’ that is largely critical or questioning, and a short conclusion that is balanced.


Background: What is the plan? What is your selected issue?

How was the issue addressed in the plan? Describe in detail different places where the issue arises and how it is handled

How is the issue addressed in the ‘planning science’ literature? In-depth article review

What problems/concerns are brought up in the ‘planning science’ literature relevant to how the issue is treated in Denver Blueprint?

What issues/concerns do these raise about the plan itself?

  • Is the analysis (implicit or explicit) in the plan correct?
  • How much uncertainty is there in the analysis? E.g., how much do we really know about this issue?
  • If the plan is wrong on this issue, how much difference does it make?

Balanced Conclusion:

What are the pros and cons of how Denver handled the issue? Considering your research, how would you have handled the issue? Would you have written the plan differently? Come up with a different plan? If so, what?

Ok, if not no big deal.

I also forgot to include an assignment I had done outlining this paper. I will copy it below. In the assignment, I selected to make this paper about Chapter 4 of the plan. With that being said, feel free to either expand upon what I wrote or completely disregard. Thank you again!!!!!

1. What is your selected issue?

After reading through the Denver Blueprint, I have decided to select issues discussed in Chapter 4: Complete Neighborhoods. One of the factors that make not just Denver, but all of Colorado unique is the distinct identities found throughout each community. I would like to further explore how the planning council intends to create, develop, and ensure the longevity of these new and existing communities.

2. How is the issue addressed in the plan?

This issue is addressed throughout the Blueprint document. Specifically, more information can be found in Chapter 4 and Chapter 5.

3. Provide one example of one peer-reviewed article that addresses the issue.

Collinson, J. (2013). Regional planning for growth containment in unincorporated rural areas: The place of complete communities and agricultural urbanism? A case study of the RDN’s rural village centre strategy (Order No. MR95688). Available from ProQuest Dissertations & Theses A&I; ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global. (1478016458). Retrieved from https://colorado.idm.oclc.org/login?url=https://search-proquest-com.colorado.idm.oclc.org/docview/1478016458?accountid=14503 (Links to an external site.)

4. How can you use these ideas to critique the plan itself?

Although this document focuses on rural communities, I feel many of the principles and solutions discussed can be directly related to the growth of Denver. The most applicable topic is the strategies related to properly managing growth in communities. This, in my opinion, is the most difficult yet pressing task faced by Denver planners.
