The About Planning website has made a number of improvements according to webmaster Richard Carson. The website has changed its look, navigability and content. It has also added some major new features. About Planning is an Internet clearing house for information about websites, publications, essays and news related to land use planning, growth management, comprehensive planning, smart growth, new urbanism and much more.
Of most interest to planners is the About Planning Directory that has links to some 300 planning related websites. Rich is the current urban planning category editor for LookSmart and formerly was editor of the Open Directory Project. The latter was selected by Planetizen as a 2002 Top 50 Website winner. Both are rated in the top three major directories that average some 3 million website links. The About Planning Quotes are equally of interest to planners. Rich has planning 173 planning related quotes from the serious like Albert Einstein to the funny like Woody Allen.
The website also has such quirky planning oddities such as the Sprawlzilla animation clip from the Colorado campaign to enact growth management and offbeat websites, such as Patio Culture, that is a hysterical take on suburbia. The website also has information on planning history, speakers, colleges and even all the current Internet planning publications available.
