The speaker was knowledgeable and passionate about form-based codes. he was up on the latest legislation in Texas and talked about ways form-based codes can be implemented in the current situation in Texas. Additionally, he addressed land uses and form-based codes and pointed out that cities cannot always depend on the market weed out inappropriate land uses.

It was a nice kick off to conference; up-beat and contemporary.

Listening to the speakers it was clear that it's going to be a bumpy ride in Texas for the next few years while folks sort the mess that was made during this last legislative session. The speakers were adamant that legislators did not realize the unintended consequences of the new laws passed (one regarding building materials and the other changing subdivision and subdivision construction regulations). I am not so sure. The unintended or maybe intended consequences do not make a hill beans to the big companies. However, an individual home builder or Joe Blow who needs to plat a parcel of land so he can build a home are going to suffer. Once again laws passed to make life more lucrative or easier for the "haves" is going hurt the little or regular folks.

It was a great tour and I learned a lot about the history of Waco. The tour included great information about the economic development in the last few years.

Craig kept the hard conversation of politics lighthearted as always, and Chance kept the conversation on track! Tough to dissect the details of the 86th session and a wake up call for planners to get more involved in the law-making process!

Monday, November 25, 2019, 11:28 a.m. CST
The legal perspective was interesting. I also thought it was a good example case for the fickle public opinion of a few "loud" voices, and the importance of messaging.
Monday, November 25, 2019, 11:26 a.m. CST
It was interesting discussion on community spaces. I thought the applicability to planning sessions was interesting.
Monday, November 25, 2019, 11:24 a.m. CST

Monday, November 25, 2019, 10:42 a.m. CST
This was the best session of the conference. We do so much community engagement, but sometimes we forget to "tell our story". This was a refreshing course that really helped give me a new perspective on communicating with the community.

Wednesday, November 13, 2019, 6:40 p.m. CST
This type of session is extremely helpful and I learned a lot about things that will affect planners in Texas, even if those are outside of the type of planning I do. One of the speakers was crude and unprofessional, which was disappointing, especially for his prominence in the Texas planning community.
Wednesday, November 13, 2019, 6:33 p.m. CST
The speakers were engaging and it was helpful to hear their public process and the bumps along the way, but there are too many dissimilarities between their community and mine to make it very relevant moving forward.
Wednesday, November 13, 2019, 6:30 p.m. CST
This speaker was incredibly engaging and the topic was an important and unusual one that planners should think about more often.
