    Spanish Planning Dictionary

    Has anyone found a website or other source that would help me translate planning terms into Spanish?

    We have a guy trying to file for a rezoning whose primary language is Spanish, and I've had great difficulty explaining the process to him. Luckily we have a planner who is fluent, but has never had to talk about planning issues in Spanish before.

    These should help . . . but jargon is jargon in any language.
    Not to mention that his familiarity with the terms and issues that surround them will prob. have a lot do with what country he came from and whether or not he lived in a city.

    Indeed you can usually tell when the concepts of democracy and citizenship are weakening. There is an increase in the role of charity and in the worship of volunteerism. These represent the élite citizen's imitation of noblesse oblige; that is, of pretending to be aristocrats or oligarchs, as opposed to being citizens.
