From a member of the baby boom generation:
We're running an article in the next issue of the Planning Commissioners Journal on how planning commissions can attract members who are in their 20s and 30s. I'd welcome feedback on:
-- what, if anything, your city (or neighborhood) has done to involve people in their 20s and 30s in local planning -- what's worked, and what hasn't?
-- do you have any members of your planning commission who are in their 20s or 30s; and, if so, do they tend to bring any different perspectives to issues?
I'd especially welcome getting any reactions from younger planners in that age range.
The full text of the draft article, written by Kit Hodge of the Neighbors Project, is available for viewing on our blog site: www.plannersweb.com (posted on Nov. 14, 2007)
