Over the past decades and increasingly over the past several years, the private sector, led by developers, have increasingly courted, conflicted and collaborated with planning department amidst shrinking budgets. As business interests engage and influence public agencies and planning strategy, the role of ethics is of increasing importance for the practicing planner or urban designer. This is the second of a two-part series that evaluates and analyses the role of planners, from public window staff to department heads, in the increasingly business friendly environment in our governance and public realm. Chapters include: 1. The Ethical Challenge 2. AICP Code of Ethics 3. Ethical Pitfalls 4. Practice Scenarios 5. Questions and Answers
