Cities can take a leadership role in creating wealth, but they need to find new ways to mobilize their residents around a common agenda. The different solutions that have been proposed in the previous chapters will all be highly empowered and effective if a city decides to create an explicit shared vision: what we call an intentional city. Cities often undertake public planning projects that offer the opportunity to create these aspects of collective action, but most city plans have remained in the domain of experts, rather than engaging residents and other stakeholders. This chapter and the next tell the tales of four cities which took the initiative to create a long-term vision, to identify how needs are met in their community, and to articulate a sustainable strategy for the future.
