Abstract: Planning activities in smaller Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio communities were surveyed through a questionnaire. The surveyed towns were required to be free-standing cities and suburban communities were excluded from the study. Size, class and state of location provided a basis for comparing city planning activities. Kentucky, with its advanced program for supporting community planning activities, provided the most active situation for town planning. Communities in Indiana yielded the lowest level of planning activity. Cities with populations of 10,000 to 20,000 had more planning activities than smaller communities. Approximately twothirds of the reporting towns lacked trained planners, and most of the towns surveyed had never received a planning assistance grant (Section 701). Most cities were zoned and usually a comprehensive plan had been prepared but planning as a continuing or on-going process was absent in most of the surveyed communities.
