I actually thought about going to that to speak against the expected NIMBYs, but studying for the GRE has put a damper in such plans. There was an article in the AA News and linked to on Goodspeed a week or two ago-- it will be at the corner of Kingsley and Ashley, and contain (for downtown) moderately-priced units, as well as some office space. P.S. UM has no undergrad urban planning program as far as I know. There is an undergraduate urban planning club now though, I believe.

I'm considering recording AAPD scanner traffic this weekend. The YPSI traffic hasn't been very exciting, the real action seems to be in A2.

Brandon, the planning department does have about three or four undergrad courses, and usually offers one of them every semester. Winter '04 semester they're offering UP423, "intro to urban and regional planning", or something like that, which I've applied to be a GSI for (ohpleaseohpleaseohplease). But no, they don't have an undergrad degree program. I think the undergrad classes are a recruitment sort of thing--very few undergrad degree programs in planning exist, but they all offer a few undergrad courses to draw people in.

Murph, You are right, it was probably just someone in an undergrad planning course. Funny you mention that-- I took Intro to Urban and Environmental planning last spring with Prof. Norton and really enjoyed it. I didn't even realize we had undergrad planning courses until my history of American suburbia professor suggested I look into it (I always just looked at the LS&A course guide, not Taubman's). And now I am applying to planning grad programs, so I guess their recruitment scheme is working.

I was going to email you times that I'm availible, but I figured it'd be better to just see what time the consensus comes to and see if I can make it. Saturdays are generally best, but my schedule's so complicated that I can't tell you hardly anything... js

Yeah, same situation as JS. I've got a fairly tough schedule (1st-year-PhD sort of workload) but if I get enough advance warning I can usually make room in my schedule. But constant deadlines don't make me a good person to make plans around.
