I have a question: How big is community planning part of your work?
I'm doing a grad degree in urban planning and I've a b/g in architecture. The planning school i'm at now seem to focus alot on community and especially --equity planning. The truth is, I didn't know that before I came here, and I have little interest in race and equity issues. Day after day I hear professors talk about race, race, race... as if planning is nothing but that.
Anyway, I just want to know how much weight this kind of community planning figure in everyone's work. If I just want to do design, real estate and land use planning stuff, do I have to deal with race and community?
I'm more interested in the economics and physical city than people. So am I screwed in the wrong course?
