How to build Public Art in Your Community: From Planning to Construction and Maintenance Considerations

The beginning half of the presentation relating to key planning elements was informative and useful. The last half was primarily focused on case studies detailing design elements of specific designs rather than information about achieving the designs, financing, and processes.

Law Session: Recovery Housing

1

While an interesting session on a very current and relevant topic the content missed the mark, especially for law credit. The presentation of the legal aspects of planning / zoning for recovery housing seemed to be secondary to the discussion of substance abuse recovery in general. This would have been a great opportunity to introduce planners to the fair housing and civil rights laws that are largely unknown to the profession but play a significant role in the permitting of recovery housing by local communities. There was a real missed opportunity with this session.
