Dr. Donovan Finn of Stony Brook University is conducting a survey about the role of climate science in local urban planning. This research is sponsored by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).

The brief anonymous survey will ask about the role of climate science in your day-to-day work as a planner. It should take about 12 minutes to complete, and the findings will inform our research about how to provide more actionable climate data for local planners.

We are interested in the views and opinions of anyone trained in planning or working in any/all aspects of planning, whether you think of yourself as working on “environmental” issues or not. The survey will not ask for or collect your email address or any personally identifiable information. However, you may voluntarily enter a drawing at the end of the survey to be eligible for one of twenty Visa gift cards ($25 each) to be given away to twenty random survey respondents.

You can access the survey HERE until February 29, 2020.

Also, please also feel free (and encouraged!) to share the survey with planning colleagues in the public and private sectors – transportation, land use, federal, state, local, county, big, small, MPO, RPC, COG, consultant, you name it. If they are educated as planners or work as planners, we would love to hear from them. Thank you!
