Please I want to write for me two pages for 3 different questions, and for Q1 & Q2 I want to use two types of sources, class material and sources down here. Please (Q1, Q2, Q3 in attachment) and whatever two or three sources you think will work from here.
Also, I want you to consider this:
– USE THE TEMPLATE IN THE ATTACHMENT AND WRITE ON IT.
– Planning theory: literature influence Correct and clear explanation
of chosen planning theory
– Planning theory: real-world influence Clear and well-thought-out
explanation of both how the informational interview and at least two
– Use of quotes Only key quotes are used; otherwise, excellent incorporation and citation of text.
– In-text citations: Cite your sources using complete and appropriate in-text citations (e.g., Williams, 2020, p. x).
– double-spaced in 12-point Times New Roman font with 1-inch margins.
Use whatever source will help in each question:

QUESTION #1 – TWO PAGES: USE Q1 MATERIAL IN THE ATTACHMENT + TWO OR THREE SOURCES FROM ABOVE THAT WORK TO ANSWER.
# 1 Reparative Planning (90 points)
Rashad Williams (2020) argues that American planning theorists have had it wrong. It is not
rational planning or the capitalist city that has harmed our cities, but white supremacist planning,
“racial planning [which] is found hiding in plain sight” (p. 4) throughout America’s urban (and
rural) development. Williams substantiates his theory of racial planning by presenting three
modes by which American planning upholds a white supremacist condition and its system of
racial capitalism. Finally, as a counterbalance to the generations of racial planning, Williams
offers reparative planning.
Name and define each of the three racial planning modes. Next, review the news articles to
consider transportation planning in the LA region. In the provided articles, at least one example
illustrates Williams’ modes of racial planning and its harms. You can also find, if not quite
reparative planning, at least one example of attempts to mitigate previous racial planning harms.
Finally, justify your answer using Williams’ text and the articles (not your opinions)
QUESTION #2 – TWO PAGES: USE Q2 MATERIAL IN THE ATTACHMENT + TWO OR THREE SOURCES FROM ABOVE THAT WORK TO ANSWER.
# 2 Green, Growing & Just Cities (90 points)
In 1996, Scott Campbell challenged planners to think more deeply about “sustainable
development.” In his influential article, he presents the triangle of conflicting goals for planning
and the three associated conflicts.
Name and define each of Campbell’s associated conflicts. Next, review the news articles to
consider transportation planning in the LA region. You can find at least one example in the
provided articles that illustrates Campbell’s conflicts. You can also find an illustration showing
the conflict in action or, perhaps, a resolution. Finally, justify your answer using Campbell’s test
and the articles (not your opinions).
QUESTION #3 – TWO PAGES: USE Q3 MATERIAL IN ATTACHMENT + ANY SOURCES
# 3 Personal Planning Theory (70 pts)
One of my mentors tells her planning theory students to figure out their worldview before they
enter planning because “the other side definitely knows theirs.”
This semester, we examined only a selection of planning theories. What planning theory did you
most connect with? Clearly define that planning theory and explain why it resonates with you
and do so by comparing it with other similar planning theories we have discussed, also
describing them in the process. (Do not pick one and give its opposite as an alternative. I want
you to get specific about why you like that one most.) This WORK conveys your preferred
planning theory. As with Questions 1 and 2, there is no correct answer. However, a successful
WORK is well organized, logically argued, and shows a solid grasp of our semester’s planning
theories and how they relate.
THANKS, AND BY THE WAY THERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF ALL THE WORK FROM DIFFERENT CLASSES IN THE ATTACHMENT, IT’S NOT THAT GOOD BUT IT SHOULD GIVE YOU AN IDEA HOW WHAT IT WILL LOOKS LIKE,
