Through my internship I not only learned the soft skills of a working planning office, but the relationship between the planner and the work structure of a public office, the daily pattern of action as to where tasks come from and who guides their execution, how specialized planners coordinate their insights, how the tasks and powers of the planner are delineated by state and federal decisions, and how the county planner can work with city planners in making overarching visions and goals.
