What's an urbanist? Don't tell me PFTF forced CIP to change my professional standards again.
A bit off topic but, An urbanist is a general term for urban theorist, critic, planner etc. or other people concerned with urbanism.
Not all urbanist are planners and not all Professional planners are necessarily urbanists. There are many of us that work in health planning, resource planning, regional planning, that probably wouldn't be considered urbanists.
In French it is a different story as “Urbaniste” is a synonym for urban planner.
So no we won’t be OICU’s instead of MCIP’s
