I recently received my MPA from Texas State University in San Marcos. My career support area was Urban and Environmental Planning, and I wrote my Applied Research Project on residential land use policies and conservation development.
I'm currently working in the Wildlife Permits program at the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, but I'm looking for something in land use planning. My interests include comprehensive planning, current planning, environmental planning, floodplain management, and watershed protection.
I've been surfing around the site a bit already and I've enjoyed following the discussions. I look forward to reading more, and I'll contribute when I can.
BTW, if you're interested in seeing my paper on conservation development, you can find it by googling "Ronald Ellis conservation development". Its title is Residential Land Use Policy and Conservation Development in the Blanco River Basin and its hosted on eCommons at Texas State University. Unfortunately, I can't post the direct link because I've yet to make five posts on this site.
