Amman 2025: From Master Plan to Strategic Planning Initiative

GSAPP Professor Robert Beauregard led a research team in the documentation of the methodology behind the creation of Amman’s urban plan, Amman 2025. After several visits to Amman and interviews with a number of experts involved in the process during the spring and summer of 2009, Professor Beauregard released the research in conjunction with the Amman Institute for Urban Development and the Greater Amman Municipality at the Center in June. The final report, Amman 2025: From Master Plan to Strategic Planning Initiative, provides a case study about the development and planning process and assesses features such as municipal government organization, stakeholder participation, and transportation planning.
