Actually, I've just applied for a position with a town just to the south of the metro area here. Wish me luck on my first foray into the officail planning realm!
Mastiff said:So you run the planning department?
I looked at the URD job... Not enough pay to make me move. Besides, I'm a real jerk. You don't want me around!
Seabishop said:Can I work out of my home . . . from the east coast? I'm a great self-starter, I can think out of the box, and I have good hygene. I won't even get onions on my lunches if you don't want me to.
You're looking really sharp today Mr. Townsend! Have you lost weight?
PlannerGirl said:ugh as Trail said planning in Nova sucks so bad it moves you to tears. I used to love planning but now...well I feel lost-very very lost.
I went to a ULI workshop a couple weeks ago, it was nice to interact with real professionals that do something besides hide behind their desks.
Id leave planning in a heartbeat if I could-just to get out of where Im working now.
Rich Townsend said:Yep, I'm the Planning & Community Development director. But still an all-round great guy. What are you doing in Oakridge? For a job I mean. And how does a real jerk keep that job?
Mastiff said:I'm the Community Services Director.
So... All planning, building, permitting. Then, I'm also in charge of public works. So, streets, water, and sewer. I also do work with the industrial park.
How do I keep the job? I'm a jerk... just their KIND of jerk.
My job is summed up as, "If it ain't bleedin', speedin', or burnin', it's your job."

Rich Townsend said:I moved here from Virginia 12 years ago. We're progressive. We're doing transportation planning right now. We're working on a trail system. We're looking for a senior planner, with fewer than 2,000 posts on Cyburbia.
Zoning Goddess said:You should have a boss like mine! He thinks: hmmm, kid out of school, day care bombed out, worker could be home or... worker could bring kid in to work. Now, what to do? Hey, teach kid to file! Works for our team. P.S. He is equally understanding for all of the co-workers, child-free, pet-free, etc.
OTOH, it would be an improvement for donk.
