AICP Code of Ethics (cont.)○ A planner must strive to provide full, clear and accurate information on planning issues to citizens and governmental decisions-makers.○ A planner must strive to give citizens the opportunity to have a meaningful impact on the development of plans and programs. Participation should be broad enough to include people who lack formal organization or influence.○ A planner must strive to expand choice and opportunity for all persons, recognizing a special responsibility to plan for the needs of disadvantaged groups and persons, and must urge the alteration of policies, institutions and decisions which oppose such needs.○ A planner must strive to protect the integrity of the natural environment.○ A planner must strive for excellence of environmental design and endeavor to conserve the heritage of the built environment.”
