A change in administration and the start of a new decade have provoked a reexamination of the role of planning. In this issue of Carolina Planning, “Planning in the Eighties: A Special Report” views the future of planning in seven articles, each focused on a separate substantive area of the profession. The articles suggest changes which may be forced upon the profession, as well as changes that it would benefit us to initiate, informed by experiences of previous decades. New partnerships with the private sector in response to a reduced federal presence is a refrain heard throughout the report.
