So what is urban planning all about anyway? I've found my chosen profession is one that is not widely understood. Well, look no further. Take a peek at this interview where I describe what I do as a long range planner and urban designer.
This video was part of a series of outreach efforts our Planning Department did as part of National Community Planning Month to educate the public on the role planners play, specifically in City government. Also as part of that effort, we set up a display (designed by yours truly) in the lobby of City Hall to spread the message about some of the key topics planners deal with.
We also had an interactive portion of the display which aimed to get public input on several vacant buildings and sites in the downtown area. The #InfillYuma campaign got over 365 unique responses about how to redevelop these sites to serve the community best. For more information, click over to the City of Yuma webpage.
