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? 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. Planners need a guide, and now they have it: the first guidebook based on the current revision of the AICP (American Institute of Certified Planners) Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. The Ethical Planning Practitioner presents 76 scenarios, all real-life dilemmas based on the code's rules of conduct. Each scenario comes with tools to help planners explore the answers on their own, in a training session, or in a classroom. This vital handbook looks at everyday ethics the way planners need to see them, in black, white, and shades of gray - but most of all, clearly. It will not only instruct but inspire planners to strengthen the public's trust.
