      Top Ten Planning Issues Of 2003

      LOS ANGELES -- From levying tolls on motorists who venture downtown
      to fighting the spread of Wal-Mart stores, news coverage of planning
      and development issues continued to grow in 2003.

      Among the top ten planning issues from 2003 were the impact of
      Wal-Mart on communities, the relationship between obesity and urban
      sprawl, the attraction of small towns versus urban centers, the
      effect of oil prices on how our cities grow, and the race to put
      more housing closer to transit, according to the editors of
      PLANetizen (http://www.planetizen.com/), the premier information
      exchange for the urban planning and development community.

      To compile the Top Ten Planning Issues of 2003, PLANetizen editors
      reviewed hundreds of news articles, books and published studies to
      track the popularity of planning and development issues worldwide.

      The results of this review appear this week on PLANetizen:
