Plan Implementation: Going Beyond the Planning Stage

Various planning efforts are used by communities and organizations to evaluate their current conditions, document their expected future, and prepare action steps to achieve their community and/or organizational goals. Such plans include community visioning, municipal comprehensive, and organizational strategic plans. While these plans have similarities as well as differences in overall purpose, process and content, they all can play a role in natural resource conservation projects and practices. No matter the plan type, they should strive for ultimate implementation of the recommendations and policies that were developed during their creation. This session will show ways by which the implementation of such plans can direct and impact land use and organizational policy issues. It will also focus on factors (before, during and after plan preparation), that influence plan implementation.
