Tumblr of the Day: 'Being a Planner'

Being a Planner addresses common industry issues like "when council asks you to serve on an ad-hoc committee," or "when I have to field questions about a new light rail system from a group of NIMBYs" all through low-resolution, pop culture clips.

The site has been up and running since May 3 and is already well-supplied with inside jokes only a planner could love.
