Clear and explicit goals and objectives are recognized as important ingredients of the urban planning process. Desirable properties of such a technique are proposed, and a modified version of the Delphi process, a method of group decision-making, is offered as a goal formulation technique that has these properties. An experiment is described in which this approach is utilized to establish goals, objctives, and numerical priorities for the goals, for a non profit public service institution.
