    New Planner in Training

    Hello all,
    I am currently a student in the Urban and Regional Planning Department at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champign. I will have completed my first year of the Masters program tomorrow (after my 8:00 am final). My interests are in economic development, transportation, and land use. I am finding this site very useful in learning more about planning.

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    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)
