Clark County's Contrarian Planner
"The first thing you should know about Rich Carson is that he asked for this profile," begins the profile in The Columbian, published in the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan area. "Carson, director of Clark County's Department of Community Development, sent e-mail to The Columbian listing 12 reasons why the paper should do a story about him." Richard Carson has 30 years experience as a planner, writer and lecturer in the Pacific Northwest. In this newspaper article, he discusses his contrarian views on urban planning, new urbanism and AICP.
