I am very pleased to announce a new addition to the COMM-ORG Papers Collection:

Citizens’ District Councils in Detroit: The Promise and Limits of Using Planning Advisory Boards to Promote Citizen Participation


Robert Mark Silverman

This paper looks at what real participation means, and how close one model of participation gets to the ideal.

You can find the paper at the COMM-ORG “Papers” page, in the 2003 section:

I hope that the paper inspires some discussion. Authors contribute papers to COMM-ORG in the hopes of getting comments, so please feel welcomed to contact the authors directly or discuss their paper through the list.

Thanks so much to Rob for contributing his work.
