The job market seems to be good. Just don't forget about hurricanes and alligators...RichmondJake said:I'm considering looking for work in Florida. What's the job market like down there and any objections to a left coast planner joining the ranks? Winters up here suck big time.
There's always a disproportionate amount of vacancies in Florida for current planning jobs, compared to most other states. Salaries seem to leave something to be desired, though; they're not insulting like those in Pennsylvania or Louisiana, but they're notthing to get excited about, either.RichmondJake said:I'm considering looking for work in Florida.

You forgot about the impending death of the DCA.Dan said:The state Department of Community Affairs (DCA) is deeply involved in local planning issues, for better or worse. Many rezoning, comp plan amendment and annexation proposals need state approval, and the process can be quite confusing.
Yes, DCA is being changed greatly, we will see what happens...green lizard said:You forgot about the impending death of the DCA.
Comprehensive planning as it lives in Florida
will change drastically. No more real oversight. No
real penalties for outdated EARs.
These and other great inovations are afoot.
