Writing and Research
RRP offers exceptional research and writing skills. The premier example is The Planning for Results Guidebook: Practical Advice for Building Successful Rural Communities. Lee and Karen Van Gilder wrote this small book in 2003 for the National Association of Counties and the Sonoran Institute. This book is available to download at http://www.sonoraninstitute.org/.
Or for purchase at the American Planning Association’s bookstore: http://www.planning.org/apastore/default.aspx.
Lee has also written academic papers, numerous comprehensive and project plans, planning studies, and training manuals (visit http://itd.idaho.gov/planning/partners/TransInYourLocalCompPlan.pdf for a manual prepared for the Idaho Transportation Department). If your agency, community, or organization needs to produce a document that is accurate, appealing, and useful, RRP may be able help.
