Magazine & Publications


The key publication of Planners Network is the Progressive Planning magazine, published quarterly.

This section focuses on regular publications of Planners Network. A number of one-off working papers and case studies are available in our Case Studies section.

PN began publishing a newsletter for its members in 1975. Eventually, the newsletter grew to include articles about a broad range of issues of concern to progressive planners. Beginning with the Winter 2002 issue, PN started publishing a 48-page quarterly magazine instead of the bi-monthly newsletter. In 2003 the magazine was renamed Progressive Planning: The Magazine of Planners Network. We also launched an E-Newsletter to update members on more time-sensitive information.

The Magazine seeks to be an important means for networking among members, a source of innovative ideas, and forum for controversial policy questions neglected in mainstream planning circles. The Magazine is still a work in progress. We have an all-volunteer Editorial Board and a few paid assistants, but shortly will need a greater paid staff to handle the growing responsibilities.

To receive the magazine, you can become a member. See the Membership page for more details.
