Brian and Tim are a great pair to present.
Tuesday, May 21, 2019, 8:42 a.m. CDT
Hands on and interactive with lots of good takeaways and room for questions.
Tuesday, May 21, 2019, 8:40 a.m. CDT
Boring and not delivered as advertised.
Tuesday, May 21, 2019, 8:36 a.m. CDT
Good meet and greet, could have used a bit more structure. Good discussion/dialogue.
Tuesday, May 21, 2019, 8:21 a.m. CDT
Inspirational and eye opening
Monday, May 6, 2019, 10:28 p.m. CDT
This was fun, good networking with a purpose.

As someone who used to work on similar projects on the private-sector side, it was interesting to hear how NPS is planning for various parks throughout the country and providing them with resources to better manage the rapid influx of park visitors.

Really great project with an interesting set of obstacles to overcome. Excited to see what the future holds for the Colfax Clover!
Thursday, April 25, 2019, 10:59 a.m. CDT
It was nice getting a quick rundown on how first/last mile planning is happening, but nothing was overwhelmingly enlightening.
Thursday, April 25, 2019, 10:55 a.m. CDT
A question asked regarding VMT was answered with a very lackluster response. It would be more enlightening to have someone studying the potential impacts associated with AVs present to provide more robust answers. Simply relying on shared rides to reduce VMT is not substantial enough to prevent sprawl and other negative externalities; a suite of policies will need to be adopted.
Thursday, April 25, 2019, 10:51 a.m. CDT
Really enjoyed the portion regarding public engagement.

This group presented several methods that the NPS is using to help manage non commuter congestion. It was interesting that many of these methods can be used to also manage commuter congestion. It also let people know that congestion is not isolated to rush hour situations.

The lightning round was a new format that grouped short presentations into a single session to provide a variety of topics. The format provided insight into multiple projects and processes and kept the audience interested thereby increasing the learning potential.
Wednesday, April 24, 2019, 4:51 p.m. CDT
First and last mile transportation issues can be complex. These speakers went through how much detail is required to try and resolve first and last mile transportation issues. With all the work, and coordination that was used, still only a fraction of the population has efficient access for the first and last mile of a transit trip.
Wednesday, April 24, 2019, 4:48 p.m. CDT
This was an interesting twist to the program. The discussion about how employees are valued, vs how they are rated for annual reviews and promotions crossed all races, genders, and workplaces.
Wednesday, April 24, 2019, 4:44 p.m. CDT
Excellent presentation on organization and responsibilities for state transportation agency. Emphasized how city and county of Denver organizations work with other local, state and federal planning and transportation agencies.
Wednesday, April 24, 2019, 10:32 a.m. CDT
I liked all the speakers and the format. The game show portion was a new and interesting idea. This event just shows that presentations don't have to be boring.
Wednesday, April 24, 2019, 10:30 a.m. CDT
Joe Olson's presentation on red light cameras was excellent as was the presentation on small cell poles and traffic structures.
Tuesday, April 23, 2019, 6:48 p.m. CDT
Great overview of an interesting project.
Tuesday, April 23, 2019, 6:45 p.m. CDT
Refreshing take on the dark science as it relates to what we do!
Tuesday, April 23, 2019, 6:35 p.m. CDT
Great session - glad to see a focus on transportation issues in natural areas not just in cities.
Tuesday, April 23, 2019, 6:34 p.m. CDT
Hard to fill the after lunch spot, but this wasn't the most exciting session unfortunately.
Tuesday, April 23, 2019, 6:33 p.m. CDT
Some interesting material, but hard to hear over lunch.
Wish they would have dived deeper into specifics about the project.
Monday, April 15, 2019, 1:45 p.m. CDT
Interesting and motivating
Friday, April 12, 2019, 4:49 p.m. CDT
I had fun!
Sunday, April 7, 2019, 10:08 a.m. CDT
hope the comments we provided Don were helpful - remember two words: raised sidewalks.
forget the gondola approach- its unrealistic
Wednesday, April 3, 2019, 4:26 p.m. CDT
It was funny, and entertaining.
Wednesday, April 3, 2019, 4:24 p.m. CDT
This session presented some interesting ideas of how stormwater management was integrated into multi-modal and placemaking projects.
Wednesday, April 3, 2019, 4:15 p.m. CDT
This panel did an OK job of presenting topics that showed how the public engagement and design process helped integrate their strategies.
Wednesday, April 3, 2019, 4:12 p.m. CDT
This was a fun idea to get people working together and networking on current issues.
Wednesday, April 3, 2019, 4:10 p.m. CDT
This was a pleasant surprise. This team had many fun ideas to get children involved in the planning process.

This was by far one of the best sessions I attended. It was a breath of fresh air to get engineers into a session that integrates planning, landscape architecture, and engineering together. APA Colorado should have at least one of these sorts of offerings per year at the conference!
Friday, February 8, 2019, 3:32 p.m. CST
The speakers really knew their topic and delivered their information very well!
Friday, February 8, 2019, 3:15 p.m. CST
Went on for too long and too much about herself, otherwise her message was good.
Friday, February 8, 2019, 3:13 p.m. CST
Well organized and interesting. Had good questions for the other speakers.
Saturday, December 29, 2018, 3:04 p.m. CST
Fun session and topic
Saturday, December 29, 2018, 2:53 p.m. CST
Best format yet!
Saturday, December 29, 2018, 2:50 p.m. CST
Great speaker and great message
Sunday, December 16, 2018, 3:09 p.m. CST
The session description and title didn't match the topics of conversation. We spent a good bit of time on upcoming legislation (which was beneficial) and then most of the session was focused on what you can't do as a planner when interacting with elected officials, rather than how to cultivate relationships while still honoring proper code of conduct.
Sunday, December 16, 2018, 3:06 p.m. CST
This session was probably my favorite from the whole conference. Very well done and engaging.
Sunday, December 16, 2018, 3:05 p.m. CST
The content didn't completely align with what I thought it was, however, it was still interesting to see the ideas.
Sunday, December 16, 2018, 3:01 p.m. CST
This panel was a great group to have speak on this topic. Very candid but encouraging as well.
Sunday, December 16, 2018, 2:58 p.m. CST
The structure of the class was very good. It was interesting to see real examples where these are happening and how planners are managing their projects while having to address these legal issues as well.
Sunday, December 9, 2018, 7 a.m. CST
These are always great presentations and are updated to stay relevant as time goes on. Now that I no longer live in Colorado, I'll look forward to attending this session at future national conferences.
Sunday, December 9, 2018, 6:41 a.m. CST
Planners need more continuing education regarding inequity and privilege. This session was a good start for many Colorado planners.

The best mobile tour I have ever taken at the State APA conference! The speakers were extremely knowledgeable, passionate, and charismatic, and the tour of the actual structures was fantastic.
