As I write this, the Florida chapter of the American Planning Association is meeting to discuss, among other things, … spprrraaaawwwwwwllllllllllllll.

Many are upset that Florida’s governor and legislature de-fanged the onerous Department of Community Affairs that oversaw growth management in the state.  The bright side to this conference, however, is that they have Samuel Staley as a featured speaker.  Staley is the managing director of the DeVoe L. Moore Center at Florida State University and also a member of the ADC and a fellow at the Reason Foundation.  He commands respect within the planning community, and our cities and places would be a lot better off if they would follow his advice more often.
