Jason,

Just to throw my 2c in: I don't think it's an issue of one generation being to blame over another. Many of the Planning Departments in our cities employ youngsters like you and I. It's not a generational mindset - it's just a mindset.

I once asked an Urban Planning Prof at York why so many enlightened graduates went to work for City Planning Departments and then made the same mistakes as their peers. He told me that they quickly learn they have to 'work within the system' and 'do what works'...

I think a lot of the mindsets we talk about are already half way on our side. We just need to keep pushing for them to do what they know is right.

Cheers

Ben
