Curious if anyone could enumerate differences between regional and city planning positions/organization and what entry and mid-level jobs might be like
I have a strong interest in regional and policy issues yet it seems that in the Bay Area (where I am from) ABAG is a fairly weak organization that holds little power. With transit planning is seems our MTC does hold the purse for transit monies but I am still trying to figure out where I might fit
I am entering grad school, MCRP, and the program is strong in physical and land use planning
As I mentioned I am as interested in the policy aspects of planning as much I am in physical planning though I don't have any other options with regard to schools. I am content making the best of my opportunities
Any advice or encouragement on the possibilities?
I do know what I am getting into and have done research but watching San Franciscan planners adjudicate little development battles is starting to scare me a bit.
