    Hello from Portland, OR

    Hello everyone, just joining to forum for some good insight and to meet other people already in the field of urban/city planning, community development. I am 21 years old and really now starting to get into the field to try and prepare myself for the next two years of college in Community Development. Nice to be here, love the layout.

    Welcome from the SW Hoosier State along the Ohio River.
    Oddball
    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)

    Hello from an early 20s planner on the Front Range of Colorado; not just a place, but a state of mind...


    Put Rumpy Tunanator on your buddy list.
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone
    -Peart

    Welcome from Chicagoland!!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    My business card says I'm a "Planning and Zoning Manager." But I'm more of a just a screw off. They pay me OK for that.

    Hello from Irving, TX!

    Whadup, Stumptowner. When you get all learned and stuff, consider the sunny Oregon Coast for all of your professional land use needs.
