I am going global(!) with a new blog - The Midwest Planning BLUZ
(Blog on Land Use and Zoning). The intent is to highlight land use
issues of interest in Iowa and surrounding states. The major thrust
will be offering summaries of court cases in (semi) real
time. Please be patient as we (an underpaid undergraduate and I)
settle into a system, but right now my hope is to be able to post
content 1-2 times per week.

You'll find the BLUZ at

Please e-mail any suggestions you may have for content, particularly
any interesting issues you are dealing with in your
communities Also, if you have something that may be of interest and
you'd be willing to be a contributor please let me know that, too!
