In larger urban development situations, actions taken at different times are each of similar magnitude, such as building an interceptor sewer now and an expre s s w a y later.

A design approach solves problems before acting on any decision, where a s a strategy approach decides what action to take now cognizant of related fu- h ow plans wo r k 41 ture actions.

The essential variables (analogous to inside temperature) are the variables such as body temperature that must re m a i n within certain ranges if an individual of the species is to survive. Gene combinations and thus individuals that happen to be able to cope with the patt e rn of disturbances in their environment survive; individuals that cannot cope do not survive. In this process of natural selection, the survival values are not chosen independently of or external to the total process. The survival values evolve simultaneously with the organisms or processes that tend toward them.

For example, if the developer will pay for the cost of the sewer extension, then extend the sewer. This policy would save the costs of making this decision in each case, treat all developers alike, and make development actions predictable. Knowing the policies of other decision makers provides evidence for forecasting their decisions. Policies are distinct from re g u l ations in that regulations change legally or administratively enforceable rights whereas policies identify standard responses for repeated instances of the same situation.
