Planning Jargon was created out of a need to formulate opinions, publicize facets, and try to give a different perspective about urban planning, as well as the built and natural environments.


1. Make (urban) planning accessible.
2. Explore planning’s connection with other fields such as education, environmental policy, public health, and practically most issues.
3. Improve access and flow of data.
4. Cultivate additional angles of thought and points of view.
5. Stimulate public participation and civic responsibility.


1. Cool and interesting infographics that I probably did not produce myself.
2. Public documents.
3. Useful and productive programs and tools.

Planning Jargon will strive to not be political, purposely avoiding certain topics. Politics, however, are fair game since most aspects of planning deal with governance, the realm of decision-making, and ingrained bureaucracy.
