Click on the plan above to make it larger.

I like one page poster plans. A simple graphic, a brief summary of the plan, and a link to the internet where the plan is explained in more depth is a simple and effective way to provide information to citizens about plans.

Most people don't have the time or interest to read a long plan. The one page summary provides most of what most people want to know, with an explanation on line that provides more information for those who want to know more about the plan.

Beth Ruyle and Craig Hullinger AICP have completed our first week as partners in our new consulting firm, Ruyle Hullinger and Associates. So far, so good, although Beth misses her coworkers at Ehlers and I miss mine at the City of Peoria.

The economy is of course very tough. And it will take time to develop a client base. But I first started a full time consulting practice in 1982, and the economy was very bad then. I was still able to build the practice.
