What is Planning?

What is planning? That is a good question. Wikipedia defines planning as “Planning in organizations and public policy is both the organizational process of creating and maintaining a plan”.

What the heck does that mean?

Well, in this humble Jedi’s opinion it means being deliberate and thinking about how our present actions will influence the future. Planning can refer to a wide range of things.

Here at W.B. Wells though, when we talk about planning we are usually talking about land use planning. How does a new residential or commercial development influence the existing state of a place, does the proposed building meet setbacks, lot coverage and parking requirements.

Confused? Don’t be, let the experts at W.B. Wells & Associates handle your planning, engineering and surveying. You don’t have to be an expert at planning or even know what it is, just sit back and be an expert in your field, whether that is making widgets, brewing coffee, beer or kombucha!
