Planner Jerry Weitz is leaving Georgia to become a professor and director of the new planning program at East Carolina University. According to Jerry, the program is in "the urban and regional planning program in the department of geography at East Carolina University (ECU) in Greenville, NC. The program has an accredited bachelor’s degree in urban and regional planning (since 1974) and a master’s degree in geography with a planning concentration. Plans are to establish an accredited master of planning degree in the next 1-5 years. ECU is the third largest and fastest growing university in NC, with 28,000 students."
This is a great move for Jerry, who has long been one of the leading planners in the Southeast and in the nation. Some of you may know Jerry from his book Sprawl Busting: State Programs to Guide Growth or his other scholarship.
