The Department wishes Macy Aicardi all the best in her next academic year at university following a very successful placement with us this summer.
A few words from Macy about her experience:
‘I am a Bermudian student at the University of British Columbia about to enter my second year of studies. I am pursuing a major in Geography: Environment and Sustainability, therefore having a position at the Department of Planning has been extremely beneficial for me in opening my eyes to possible career paths! The past few months I have been working with planners within the Development Management side of planning which has meant lots of site visits, meetings with the DAB and applicants, and learning about all the legislation and policies required to assess an application. Some projects I have undertaken this summer include visiting and assessing structures which have used shipping containers and commenting on the appearance of telecommunications across on the island. It’s been inspiring to see employees within this department passionate about improving the efficiency of planning in Bermuda. Everyone in the Planning Department has been extremely helpful and friendly and I am very grateful to have had this opportunity’.
