My point more clearly stated is that planning is policy making. But somewhat unique to urban planning is that the policies are “built” and in many cases lasting 10, 20, or more years. So who gets to voice an opinion for the built environment they will live in? My ancestors? Me? Obviously those before us make the decisons we live with and live in. But hopefully one day we will plan in ways that accomadate demographic and cultural changes better from one generation to the next.
