In my young career, I've had plenty of opportunity to administer or implement plans, but never to create a plan (from absolute scratch). Lend me your wisdom, oh Throbbing BrainTM. What process is a *general* process that you have used to create a plan. Any successesful formats for public input? Any other thoughts on traps that I could/will walk into along the way?
Of course, the senior planners in my department have the process they've followed and are willing to guide me along the way, but I'm looking for other insight.
I am/have been a "current" planner (site plan review, commissions, etc) up to this point. Now, I'm getting the opportunity to truely plan.
