Handbook for planning commisioners in Missouri
The purpose of this handbook is to help the planning commissioner with his understanding of the planning process in Missouri. In order to assist the planning commissioner, we have put together facts about the elements that shape the procedures for planning in Missouri on three levels, the city, county, and region. A special interpretation of the Missouri Statutes in the Appendix section will show the parallel in the functions of a city planning commission, a county planning commission, and a regional planning commission. We have tried to explain the basic contents of a comprehensive plan and give an overview of the relationship between the city, county, and region. With this we have provided maps, diagrams, and tabular listings so that the planning commissioner may see the relative status of planning throughout the state. A number of political and economic factors that have speeded up the planning activity are cited and explained on each planning level. Action by the federal government, the state, and the local level are described.--Introduction.
