Interesting Planning Blogs

7 posts in this topic


One problem with some of the planning blogs: they're not maintained by planners, but rather by urbanists, academics, those working for think tanks, and so on. That's not to say they're not intelligent reads, but it's difficult to find blogs that are actually written by planners. I understand why a "hard planning" blog might seem boring in comparison to those that are more urbanist-oriented.

The Planning Commissioners Journal blog (http://pcj.typepad.com/) is an excellent resource for "citizen planners" such as planning commissioners, as well as for regular "planner planners". Law of the Land (http://lawoftheland.wordpress.com) is required reading for zoning geeks. There's others out there, but I'm too tired to compose a comprehensive post.

Shameless self-promotion: I've got an aggregator of planning/urbanism blogs (http://www.cyburbia.org/buzz/planning_and_urbanism) and transportation-related blogs (http://www.cyburbia.org/buzz/transportation), among others.

For those interested in transit and infrastructure The Transport Politic() and The Infrastructurist() have something interesting nearly every day. The best Denver blog is Denver Infill Blog(http://denverinfill.com/blog/) which has lately been providing steady updates on the Union Station project. The Urbanophile() has excellent content on Midwestern urbanism and planning.
