Welcome! All members of communities should be involved, informed and have the opportunity to participate in issues important to them. With more african americans and other minorities gaining access to the world wide web, It's critical for messages about our community's environmental and development policies reach the people they most effect.

On this website, you will find comprehensive resources, collected from communities and researchers around the country, local level community development and environmental issues. Innovation Planning Now advocates modern research and implementation of best practices in community development, land use/environmental planning and policy.
I invite you to take advantage of this network, to contribute your own resources and ideas, and to learn from one another.
