Community Planning for Agriculture and Natural Resources: A Guide for Local Government

More information on natural resources and local sources would have been useful for a planner of a municipality. Great information for a County planner, though.

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

4

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.

Race & Place: The Ethics Case

This was a tough subject at the end of the day. But it was very informative and I appreciated the audience participation to keep it interesting.

Good topic. Feel like AARP is missing the point a little bit.

Monday, May 13, 2019, 11:50 a.m. CDT

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

Informative talk.

Monday, May 13, 2019, 11:01 a.m. CDT

Dillon's Rule, Home Rule and Everything in Between: Who Controls what between state and local governments?

I am still a bit unsure of the difference but it is much more clear now. I would be interested in future sessions covering this topic.

Friday, May 10, 2019, 9:42 p.m. CDT

Dillon's Rule, Home Rule and Everything in Between: Who Controls what between state and local governments?

Monday, October 1, 2018, 9:34 a.m. CDT

The Atlanta Regional Commission's Project Evaluation Framework

5

Best presentation I have seen in ages. I even followed up with the presenter to get more information. Creating a data-driven project evaluation helps us build defensible plans and creates trust between our agencies and the local constituents.

Monday, October 1, 2018, 9:33 a.m. CDT

How Planning Products can inform the Environmental Review Process

4

I very much found this presentation informative. Prenter was a little unenergetic for being the first of the morning. I would like to work with our NEPA teams and other review bodies to make sure our plans are providing information that is useful for multiple agency requirements.

Monday, October 1, 2018, 9:31 a.m. CDT

Thanks Mayor of Jasper for taking the time to talk about this project.

Friday, September 7, 2018, 2:34 p.m. CDT

More background and time could have been spent on the examples. Many were quickly reviewed.

Thursday, September 6, 2018, 8:18 p.m. CDT

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 3:37 p.m. CDT

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.

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 3:30 p.m. CDT

#Me too, A Planners Guide to Sexual Harassment

Tami Earnhart was a great addition to this session; she is an engaging speaker. Her comments held your attention and were very relevant. It was a very good session on a potentially challenging topic.

I'm not sure the project was as innovative as the speakers thought it might be for a room full of planners.

Why Indiana Zoning is New York City Zoning and What to Do About It

5

This is the best ethics class I have ever taken.

Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 9:25 a.m. CST

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.

Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 9:19 a.m. CST

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.

Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 9:12 a.m. CST

The Role of Analysis, Workforce and Economic Development in Planning

3

Interesting information presented. Presentation would have been better if the panel would have been standing while speaking and used visuals to explain how data is used.

Wednesday, November 8, 2017, 9:01 a.m. CST

Time Travel to the Future- Local Planning Department

4

I would have liked to see a deeper dive into 2 or 3 trends rather than a broad (and shallow) discussion of multiple trends. As always KK is a great presenter!
