2022 Ethics Cases of the Year

3

I am not completely positive this is the correct webinar that I actually watched, because I am uncertain of the search engine's results. I do attest, however, that I attended a session on ethics for which I was billed $20. The course I attended was titled "Ethics Cases of the Year 2023" which differs slightly. Just doing my best to stay ethical.

Keynote Address: Planning with Purpose

5

I really enjoyed hearing Mitchell's perspective on diversity, inclusion, and equity and how to deal with these three (3) areas in a politically charged environment. I liked how he showed as planners that we need to look at equity as fairness. I appreciate that he was willing to come to Idaho to speak to us.

Are We Overregulating ADU's?

5

I enjoyed hearing the varying perspectives on accessory dwelling units. My jurisdiction is in the process of a zoning ordinance rewrite and one of the items that we are updating is accessory dwelling units. It was nice to learn how others in the State of Idaho deal with ADU's.

Managing Increased Pressure in the Planning Office

The speakers did an excellent job of presenting their material and provided useful examples and strategies. It was helpful to hear that other planners have similar stresses and pressures on them. I was able to take away a few things that I will be able to apply in my professional life.

Ethics Cases of the Year

4

I would like to see ethics cases from other states to understand a broader perspective on ethical matters. I have dealt with many in my career here in Idaho and in California. And it would be good to see some examples from other states so planners could be mindful of what to look out for.

Idaho’s Heritage: Preparing Historic Preservation Plans

4

We do not know what we've got, until it is gone. Historic Preservation takes will, momentum and vision, but the end result is always worth the effort, even if we do not realize it at the time. I am thankful these people are dedicated in their positions, and for sharing their experiences.

How Does Growth Impact My Community’s Bottomline

2

Presenter was very frantic in his presentation, jumping between different types of analysis and jurisdictions. Would have been more effective by presenting less information, but going into deeper detail.

Bridging Planning Education and Practice via Emerging Information Technologies

3

This was probably good for awareness. I was hoping it would maybe help describe how to better bridge planning education with practical planning application. It's a huge weakness of most planning programs. Perhaps that was my own assumption reading into the title too much. It was nice to see more awareness of the urban platform though. They have even more changes coming in the next couple of releases with more indicators and better integration with ArcGIS Enterprise (a big reason some agencies don't use it; they'd have to pay for ArcGIS Online credits too). Digression though. The speaker did a great job; very well informed.

Identifying Opportunities to Improve Resilience-Planning in Idaho

4

I had to leave towards the end of the breakout room session, and missed coming back together but reviewed the video later. There was only like 2 minutes left in the video and everyone was shy (apparently). No one shared except the hosts. It would be cool if the other breakout rooms would have been recorded and integrated into the video. Not sure if that's possible.
