Life in US cities today is certainly complex. On the one hand, many US cities are vibrant places, filled with museums and other cultural attractions, nightclubs, theaters, and restaurants and populated by people from many walks of life and from varied racial and ethnic and national backgrounds.

Effective community development planning takes a comprehensive approach to meeting community needs—an approach that recognizes the interrelationship of economic, physical and social development.

Community development programs are led by community members at every stage - from deciding on issues to selecting and implementing actions, and evaluation.

Over the last three decades, both the public and policymakers have become increasingly concerned over the negative consequences of human activities.
