I am puzzled. Tell me why the Boise, Idaho area has a terrible time recruiting professional planners. We offer a decent salary (enough for a planner 2 to buy a house), a high quality of life (especially if you like the outdoors, and there's a ski area nearby), and a healthy respect for planning (at least in the urban areas). We've had abysimal responses to recent job postings, and have just left the positions open indefinitely. I've worked back east where these types of jobs would attract 15-20 resumes.
