    Hear to listen, learn, help when I can.

    Hello;

    I am a land use specialist with Michigan State University Extension. My focus is on land use (planning and zoning) in Michigan. Major part of the job is providing continuing education for professional planners as well as to members of planning commissions and appeals boards. Also a co-author for Michigan's Citizen Planner program. Prior to MSU Extension I was a practicing planner for 20+ years in both the public and private sector. My web page is www.msue.msu.edu/wexford/LU/ .

    I know nothing about Michigan planning, but I did spend a week golfing there a couple of years ago. Welcome from the Florida panhandle.

    Welcome Kurt, you will be a great asset to the place.

    Welcome!

    Hey, is Michigan trying to take over Cyburbia?
    Anyone want to adopt a dog?

    Welcome from the Hoosier State: you'll no doubt add a certain luster to Cyburbia. And there are a number of MSU alumni here that speak well of the planning program and their educational experiences there. My former boss was an alum as well.

    Kurt, you may want to remove the +at+ symbol in your email address: spambots troll around everywhere, even as much as Dan and the mods do to head it off.

    Welcome from a born and bred Michigander now in Chicagoland!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    Welcome from another Hoosier.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Schindler, welcome to the boards. Jump right in. I've used some of the materials from MSU in the past to educate Commissioners and the public.
