Abstract:
While local governments are making efforts to create more inclusive social policies, little is known about what these policies are and how they are developed. To better understand municipal immigrant integration practices, my Master’s Thesis, Building Integrated Communities: Innovative Bureaucratic Incorporation Strategies for North Carolina, completed in May 2012 examined integration using two methods: 1) analyzing strategies local jurisdictions employ across the country to integrate immigrants and 2) presenting a case study to better understand the contextual, structural, and institutional factors of a two-year strategic planning process to develop an immigrant integration plan in three local jurisdictions in North Carolina, a new immigrant destination. From this analysis, I gleaned practical recommendations for other local governments interested in developing similar immigrant integration initiatives that will be discussed in this article.

Abstract:
This article explores the relevance of the planning profession and the value of comprehensive plans as an effective planning tool, through a single case study: Raleigh’s recently adopted 2030 Comprehensive Plan. The plan is simultaneously a blueprint for the future and a forum for an ongoing discussion about the future of Raleigh. The plan achieved these outcomes by virtue of the process that created it, the framework under which it is implemented, and the standing commitment to keep the plan current and accountable over time. Raleigh’s success story with the adoption of the 2030 Comprehensive Plan highlights the role of comprehensive plans in guiding communities towards long-term success.
