Because many rural communities are new to the world of planning, the guide begins with a discussion of the arguments for and against planning, particularly as they relate to rural and agricultural landscapes. It provides an overview of the basic principles of successful planning. It introduces three basic stages of a planning exercise - Inventory, Goal Setting, and Policy Development - and these serve as the basis for Sections III-V of the guide.
