    Stumbled on this site, looks interesting. Spent two years on the Lacey, WA planning commission. The last ten have been on the Lacey city council, four years as mayor.

    Thursday afternoon I'm appearing at the legislature to talk about the coordination of Growth Management Act land use planning and transportation planning.

    Wish me luck.

    Welcome from the Hoosier State.

    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?

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

    Welcome from Colorado. It would be interesting to get the view of a municipal elected official outside of a public hearing.

    Hello, from Irving, TX!

    Good luck at the legislature!

Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Welcome, from a non-planner Bear who hangs around NW Ohio (and Cyburbia). Glad you have joined us. We look forward to your posts.

    Off-topic: My son and his family moved in January from NW Ohio to Lake Oswego, OR.....just a hop-skip-and jump from you......relatively speaking.
