Planning & Elitism

Ken Snyder at Planetizen points to the lack of democracy (and thus by implication the elitism) found in the world of planning. Though I am disinclined to agree with Mr. Snyder regarding the worth of planning, I can wholeheartedly agree with his conclusions about the planning community; that "most public participation in planning today is periodic and reactive." I believe this is because of the place where planning comes from; that is from such efforts as the "city beautiful" movement, etc. that were inclined to treat the poor and those without a great deal of political power in a mocking paternalistic manner that could border on hostility.
