A disappointing informercial for the DLCD/ODOT TGM grant program, a program of which I was already familiar. Every example was not only a TGM example, but also seemed to result in codes that though improved were weak tea. Lastly, the examples lacked clear examples of images or texts of codes before and after.

The speaker was politically timely and relevant by speaking to the social justice issues of the day at local levels, but evaded what, if anything, the speaker had actually done in office.

I was skeptical, but the speakers, slides, and print materials including the economic development booklet conveyed that John Day really is making lemons into lemonade. If it did it , my city can do it.

Provocative and often inadvertently amusing. Fascinating for the collision of case law, technical ideas, and what city planners actually do and need to do in daily work. A drawback is that the Eugene staff never mentioned what was long public news, that the city adopted best practices because it got into severe legal troubles in recent years. Admitting it and more importantly speaking to how the city leverage that into changing staff practices would've been a great lesson for the audience. The slide quotes from staff reports were useful, but also were examples of clunky writing.

Wonky but clear and giving food for thought. The City of Newport rep was most helpful in explaining what monies small cities can leverage.

The Milwaukie case study was enlightening.
Andrew Heben of SquareOne was most helpful in conveying a social services provider's point of view.
