    The never ending regional planner thread

    Hey - this thread is to talk about the fun times of being a regional planner

    I run a regional planning commission in Maine - in a state of local control, it's a dicey situation but most of my work is for specific towns but I try to do things that can translate to other communities

    The hard part is it's a non-profit, member organization so I am like a planning firm so I have to stay billable - new challenge after being in local government since 1992!

    The good news is I get to do what I like doing, planning projects, without being too entrenched in any one community

    If you are a regional planner, check in and talk about what you do, pose questions to the group or sound off!

    LOL

    Regional planning is some far away dream west of Schenectady and east of Petaluma (with Minneapolis being an island).
