This is the second course of the "Introduction to Planning" track. In the first course, we discussed the Comprehensive Plan, sometimes called the Master Plan or General Plan. In this course, we will provide an overview of implementation strategies for the plan and examine how those strategies fit together. The course examines three implementation strategies in particular, but it is also important to take a broad and comprehensive look at implementation, just as the comprehensive plan provides a broad look at the community.
