Collaborative Design of Citizen Engagement in City and County Comprehensive Planning: A Simulation

Tom Bryer, University of Central Florida
The Secretary of the Florida Department of Community Affairs has called a special meeting.  Invited are an elected official, two public managers, a citizen activist, a business representative, and a facilitator.  The Secretary's charge to them is to create an alternative proposal for engaging citizens in comprehensive planning.  The purpose of this simulation is to allow students to experience a collaborative problem solving process, as well as to explore the challenges of public managers collaborating with the public.  In addition, the simulation can be used to teach facilitation skills.
