After going through the MS Planning program, Connor Harmon felt prepared and ready to tackle a full-time planning job. He is a development planner for the Village of Mount Prospect, a suburb outside Chicago, Illinois. Because the village is mid-sized suburb (population 55,000), he is able to gain exposure to many facets of the planning profession. He recently finished writing and designing a sub-area plan for the village, which was adopted last year. He also performs and presents zoning cases to the village's planning and zoning commission (among other responsibilities), including two recent high-profile multifamily developments in their downtown.
