For planners, urbanologists, architects, and city officials, the American Planning Association's website is always worth a look. Not surprisingly, their blogs are top-notch and all of them are available here. All told, there are five blogs: Policy News for Planners, Recovery News, Sustaining Places, Kids Planning Toolbox, and Creative Chicago. The Sustaining Places blog is a great place to start and contains thoughtful posts on solar panels, sustainable design in the developing world, and so on. Visitors can also look through the posts by tags, which include art, audits, bicycling, campus, Brazil, and other topics. The Kids Planning Toolbox blog contains commentary on how to get young people involved with planning, complete with a link to a very fun game called Plan it Green: The Big Switch, which helps children learn how to plan a model green city. Of course the Policy News blog should be a mainstay of any planner’s news diet and it can be followed via RSS feed for convenience.
