- Check out my chapter “Native Currents and Coast Salish Planning” with Dr. Kristina Ackley in Planning the Pacific Northwest, published by the American Planning Association Press in time for the national conference this spring.
- Hear about my sabbatical findings on the impacts of e-commerce on cities and nascent responses in Germany at the Annual Meeting of the Association of American Geographers meeting in Chicago on April 23rd.
Wishing everyone a very “spatial” year,
I am on a research sabbatical this fall in Germany. I can be reached through my usual Evergreen e-mail address. Germans can find me at the Geography Institute of the University of Wuerzburg.
Jennifer will be presenting at the Association of American Geographers (AAG) conference in Tampa, Florida April 8-12, 2014. Additional information on the program schedule will be posted here.
The Municipal Retail Planning Survey has concluded with a 75% response rate. The survey was sent electronically to 110 small and medium-sized municipalities in Washington with questions about the data used in their planning, the functionality of their downtowns and other retail areas, competition among municipalities for retail development, and other topics. The survey team is grateful to survey respondents for their time. Preliminary findings are being presented at the WA-APA conference on October 2nd. Additional scholarly publications will follow in the winter. More information will be posted here.
