The Performance and Future of PPP's for Economic Development

5

This was a really good session and, unfortunately, the scheduling of it (last session of the last day - competing with Ethics) caused a low turnout. Would have liked to spend more time on Prof. Frankel's research findings and less time on the laundry list of economic development successes in Lafayette. Information from Elaine Bedel's was great! Her participation in this session was excellent and she deserved more of an audience.

Planning Parking In the Age of Transportation Network Companies and Fully Autonomous Vehicles

4

Really interesting and timely topic. Would have liked to hear about how autonomous vehicles and cars on demand services are competing with the efforts for mass transit. Planners have been talking about mass transit for decades and there was no discussion of transit in this transportation presentation - until a specific question was asked.

Great presentation with Parks and Rec. theme. Suggestion: It would be great if ethics discussions would not always fall onto the development review aspects of planning approvals. Next time consider other boards and commissions or interactions that AICP planners are involved with and how ethics can easily come into play.

Tour Bloomington on Bike

I enjoyed the bike tour. I got to experience a range of biking facilities from: rail/trail (the B Line), to marked bike lanes, and to a couple of quasi marked facilities I can't remember the name of. I learned to make sure I stopped at stop signs and used hand signals or I'd get in trouble!. It was educational and fun.
