Hampton Oysters and Other Treasures (HOOT) Mobile Eco-Tour

The tour covered a wide breadth of what makes Hampton special. From learning about oysters and their added value to the ecosystem to viewing some of the oldest trees in the area, this mobile eco-tour was a very rewarding experience.

I thought it was the best session of the conference. As someone in transportation planning, it applied to what I do, on a day-to-day basis. I thought the speakers did a very good job, as well. The DRPT tools seems to be very interesting.

great speaker

Ethics Case of the Year

4

It would help to have handouts to work from, as in past years. Or remind people to bring a copy of the AICP ethics standards. It is very hard to have a group discussion while looking up the provisions on our phones. The discussion would be more valuable if we all had the same reference to look at. Otherwise, great session.

Cottage Housing in the City of Falls Church

5

The topic was interesting and relevant as it relates to the changing market dynamics communities must face going forward.
