If a local college gives a city planner tickets to a sold-out football game, is it wrong to take them — even if the planner pays for them? Should a planning consultant bid on a project that has a clearly unrealistic timeframe? Can a planning director moonlight for another agency? For practicing planners, potential ethics violations abound, and the eye of public scrutiny never blinks.
Written for planning practitioners, this is the first ethics guide based on the 2009 revision of the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. A variety of scenarios present real-life dilemmas based on the code's 26 rules of conduct. Each scenario comes with educational tools and suggested variations so training facilitators can use them again and again. A solid grounding in ethics literature makes the book appropriate for classroom use.
In an era prone to skepticism, planners must exercise constant diligence to remain on the right side of ethics. The Ethical Practicing Planner will not only instruct but inspire planners to strengthen the public's trust.
Foreword by W. Paul Farmer, FAICP.
