With this issue of Carolina Planning, we celebrate twenty years of publication. Thanks to the support of the North Carolina Chapter of the American Planning Association and the Alumni Association of the Department of City and Regional Planning at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Carolina Planning has continuously explored issues of planning in the southeastern United States.
In this issue, we examine how several aspects of planning have changed over the past twenty years.
