    ...when someone screams that zoning is an abuse of public power, and then the same person screams the next week for you to "just get rid of" that junkyard or whatever that's just sprung up in his backyard...

    Even though i work for the local chapter of AIA,
    i do not have an education in architecture
    (i have one in fine arts - so what do you really do?)
    anyway - in my 2 1/2 years here it has always perplexed me
    as to why engineers, architects and planners seem to view
    each other as enemys - when in reality if all would work
    together it would be more beneficial to the community the
    are serving - which is ultimately what there goal should be.
    i realize that this may sound a bit idealistic
    (i refuse to be 30 and jaded) however -
    if attitudes are not changed in all forums -
    all hope will be lost.
    well i'll put the soap box away now.

    Trying to secure a planning job through the internet before I move my family across the country to New England is tough, but it's better than waiting for JobMart every month (or whatever) and finding next to nothing. Look out New England, here I come.

    For all planners out there, beware. Architects and Engineers think of
    you as their "jack of all trades" knowing a little of everything but
    devalue your overall skills. I wonder if there is any good planning
    jobs in Canada left.

    Friends of mine back home who continually ask my how my architecture education is going...and along the same lines...having to constantly explain to people the difference between Planning and architecture.

    I am still introduced as so and so- An Architect.
    I immediately stop and check them by saying that I'm not an architect but a planner. :-}

    Wow....almost 8 years ago......and I still occasionally have to explain the difference between a planner and an architect.
