This collection includes applied planning projects created by Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) students for the MURP Graduate Planning Workshop from the Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning.

Planning projects require the development and evaluation of alternatives and include recommendations for courses of action. They are problem-centered, geographically-focused, and depend on direct community consultation and participation.
