Good session. The focus on the Ramapo Nation and their religious needs relative to land use gave this session an angle I had not considered.

Planning for Healthy Communities

Excellent session. Here at the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy we have been emphasizing the nexus between urban planning and public health. This was a highly topical and highly important session!

As always Dr. Hughes' discussion was poignant and humorous and chock to the brim with supportive data. I always enjoy his presentations!! One of the best parts of the NJ Planning Conference - always.

Friday, May 18, 2018, 3:08 p.m. CDT

Excellent discussion on a topi that frankly receives insufficient attention! All of the speakers were highly knowledgeable including, of course, Professor Listokin, who essentially created the multipliers we use in planning.

Managing Religious Land Use Controversies

4

There was one RLUIPA case that was discussed and I believe it was factually misrepresented based on my personal involvement with the case. This is a sensitive topic in NJ and I think that future discussions should attempt to hew closely to the facts of a situation since RLUIPA cases are fact sensitive. This was, however, a very engaging discussion of the issues by the speakers and I applaud them for taking on the sensitive issues involved.

Thursday, April 12, 2018, 1:53 p.m. CDT

LANDSCAPE FOR THIS DAY AND AGE

A lot of great advice, but the advice that resonated most with me was for planners undertake concerted outreach for divergent opinions and challenge our own conventional thinking.

Friday, April 6, 2018, 12:17 p.m. CDT

The Atlantic City Gateway Project: Effecting Change Through Cooperation and Perseverance

This was an excellent presentation by the speakers and delved into the practical realities of coordinating redevelopment across multi-agencies with jurisdiction over development in Atlantic City. For me, it was another good reminder of the need for flexibility in the application of plans.

Siting of Recovery Treatment Facilities: Responses to Legal Challenges and Community Opposition

Good session! I thought it succeeded in showing how a political/policy issue can actually be addressed with planning's involvement. Did show that the "addressing" is far from easy, but is worth the effort.

Wednesday, March 7, 2018, 1:41 p.m. CST

LEED for Cities and the WELL Community Standard

I hope that this segment will continue to be part of the APANJ conference (whether in the morning or at lunchtime). I have found it to be most informative.

The Atlantic City Gateway Project: Effecting Change Through Cooperation and Perseverance

4

While I am not involved in AC at all from a planning perspective, I decided to take this class because AC has been hurting, and I was curious to see what steps have been taken overall to redevelop and reinvigorate the city as a whole and what I can bring back to my city. The city remains a town divided by economic class, and NJ taxpayers have invested quite a bit of money for its rebirth. I was hoping for a wider discussion, but the specific project that the speakers spoke about was intriguing. I hope it's another positive move for the city.

Tuesday, February 27, 2018, 3:05 p.m. CST

The New Urban Crisis

5

I always walk away from this type of professional lecture with a desire to do more in planning... and then I get caught up in having to catch my train home, pick up dinner and the myriad tasks of real life. One of these days I am actually going to take some of the original thoughts/ideas that speakers like Rich Florida speak about and make something out of it. Someday....
