Do public sector city planners do any work? ?
Or do they just have boring policy jobs? What about private sector planners? I notice that many municipalities outsource the land use maps, comprehensive planning & everything else interesting to the private sector! Do public sector planners really have any responsibilities or interesting work???
When I had an internship w/one NW Suburb, it seemed that all the planners did was say: Yes or No to citizens or developers. I want a creative career where you actually make plans that get implemented.
Are mature communities different from growing fringe areas?
How difficult are the respective job markets?
