Off the Shelf and Into Action

Why are comprehensive plans completed and then not implemented?

Over the past few years, Denny Puko and Jim Pashek have struggled with this question. Off the Shelf and Into Action opens a conversation with planners across the country to lead to more relevant and results-oriented community planning. 

The book is a definitive guide to implementable planning, and explores a variety of reasons why comprehensive plans are not implemented and instead collect dust on the shelf. It provides a wealth of ideas and stories to ensure a plan does not leave implementation to chance, but leads proactively to positive and practical results for a community.
