Warren Logan, a Bay Area transportation planner, has new ideas about how to truly engage diverse communities in city planning. Hint: It starts with listening.

Key findings

Transportation Planner Warren Logan has found that to get to the core of transportation issues they need to turn the traditional community engagement style of City Hall Meetings on its head by going in to the community and find the people who would be effected by change the most.

The conversation needs to change towards more of a "what is our vision?" statement, instead of just listing all the things that are wrong with the system.
