Urban and Regional Planners Information
August 18th, 2017

Urban and regional planners develop long- and short-term plans for the use of land and the growth and revitalization of urban, suburban, and rural communities and the region in which they are located. They help local officials alleviate social, economic, and environmental problems by recommending locations for roads, schools, and other infrastructure and suggesting zoning regulations for private property?work that requires forecasting the future needs of the population. Because local governments employ the majority of urban and regional planners, they often are referred to as community or city planners.

User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
In final semester.. It was successful because I and my group members understand ours task completly.
2.
I was given Cornmarket Street as an open space to redesign. I took a bigger picture approach to this redesign. I knew that the construction of an events centre was beginning at one end of a road in close proximity to the site I was redesigning. I also knew that this open space had key connections to a high street retail area and had a great deal of permeability. I had noticed there was an area of this open space that was derelict and I asked myself what I would put there. After careful observation, I determined that moving a bus stop from along the river was a perfect solution. It removed the physical barrier of the river from the flows of passengers who were coming to Cork City. It also provided more foot traffic through North Main Street to the events centre and other areas. It also condensed the city centre. I was given a great deal of positive feedback for this redesign.
3.
Presented a couple of different projects to the Planning Commission. A good example would be presenting the project for a new 90,000-square foot commercial center. I was able to explain the project to PC members, addressing the site layouts, on-site circulation, building architecture, discuss the development hardships. The reason it was successful, it was because I was prepared and discussed the project with the applicant. As a planner, I try to think outside the box, and think of questions or concerns the commission may asked.
4.

This person wanted more car parking however and did not understand the good this analysis provided.

4.
I had a supervisor while on an internship who was ineffective at communicating issues that upset her. She had a great deal of difficulty directing her feelings towards the right place and instead directed them at anyone and everyone. One day she did this to me, and began yelling at me in front of other people for an issue that was not my doing. I remained calm, though this was difficult, and when she was done, I asked her if we could speak in private for a moment. Once we were alone, I explained that it was highly inappropriate and unprofessional to speak in such a manner to an employee in front of other people. I also calmly addressed the concern she clearly had in such a way as to bring a different perspective to it. She thought about my words and apologised for her inappropriate direction of anger towards me, explaining that no one had ever taken the time to explain what she was doing.

User Submitted Interview Answers
1.
My greatest weakness is being overly critical.
2.
One of my greatest weakness is that I tend to explain the project or issue either to a co-worker or a supervisor I tend to explain the entire process/history of the project. The reason I provide the background, is to make sure that they understand the question or issue. However, in certain situations it is not necessary to explain the entire background. What I am doing to improve my weakness is to focus on the issue at hand, if asked provide the additional information and provide a solution or alternatives to solve the issue at hand. Which includes being prepared, do research and obtain the necessary information from the applicant to be able to address the issue at hand.

Somewhat of a workaholic since I expect perfection or a very high level of work and completion of tasks for myself. Spend less hours at night working and a little more time with my kids.

3.
Most recently, I have completed a post graduate degree in Urban and regional Planning from one of the top 100 universities in the world. I have learned about planning concepts and theories at UWA and also given opportunities to apply these principles by doing real life projects. I have done actual projects funded by Government in University on two regional towns and one city. We have applied most of the data collection techniques like suveying, interviewing, land use survey, public surveying etc . Additionally we had statistical data documented over an interval of 5 years for almost all the relevant factors affecting the daily life of the subjected towns and cities. I am quite confident that these techniques are transferable and can be applied onto any city or town in any country for such improvement or redevelopment projects. Most importantly, the internship term I have got with Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority, the only state planning agency in western australia handling the redevelopment of metropolitan region of the state was an excellent opportunity to learn about assessing development applications. Here I have assessed the compliance of development proposals against the land policies and regulations. To put it in a nutshell, I would say, my university education and other experiences have equipped me well for taking up a position as a town planner in your organisation.
4.
I studied social science for my undergraduate degree. I took from it a clear understanding of policy, power relations and socio economic issues that permeate Ireland.

I believe both my working and educational background have prepared me uniquely for this career and may have armed me for many situations that I will face as a planner.

My education was very valuable and I was lucky to have professors how had knowledge of all the specialties and areas of planning. Everyone of my professors emphasized the importance of comprehensive planning making sure one accounts for all the elements of planning without leaving any out and ensuring adequate public participation in the planning process. The plans we write has effects on everybody within the city some more than others. But it is important to not leave out important stakeholders or the public in the process.

While I greatly appreciated the current state of the area and was in awe of its beauty, I could also see that it would be far more beautiful if the landscape was not drowned.

I believe our communities are built of both, quick and flashy has its place as most developments these days are based on this concept, however, something that is timeless has marked its place in society, and lasted the test of time, but with our ever changing environment we risk for example outdated buildings, or networks. But timeless definitely plays its part in our urban and regional environments.
