Thursday Breakfast (Keynote & Board Meeting): America's Systemic Housing Crisis: The Challenge for Planners

A scary fact of reality that all City Planners need to be aware of. Rich getting richer and middle class extinction

Monday, October 16, 2017, 5:31 p.m. CDT

Historic Downtown Telluride Walking Tour

5

This was by far the best session of the conference! Tareq and Abe are always amaizing at this and Cheney did a great job 'subbing' for this session!

What if Single-family Homes House Multiple Households?

5

Great session on the various tools that Colorado jurisdictions have implemented to allow for ADUs and account for the short-term rental markets. For cities that cannot expand their boundaries, I think getting creative to allow more housing options and hopefully address the affordability issues at the same time are key to moving forward.

Thursday, October 12, 2017, 10:51 a.m. CDT

Oh, Where Will the Millennials Move Next?

4

Great presentation, lots and lots of data! I don't think there is a clear answer as to where millenials will move...It seems as though life events and aging still trend towards the suburbs but also that millenials still want walkable places! Hopefully more jurisdictions can allow for mixed uses to incorporate neighborhood services into suburban areas.

Vested Rights and Development Agreements: What Planners Should Know

Very thorough presentation on development agreements and the various pros and cons. The examples were very helpful, such as the Tech Center and Union Station. We use Development Agreement in my jurisdiction, but not to the extent that they could be according to this session. Very informative!

Wednesday, October 11, 2017, 5:32 p.m. CDT

Thursday Breakfast (Keynote & Board Meeting): America's Systemic Housing Crisis: The Challenge for Planners

4

Interesting take on the housing issues in Colorado as well as across the country. I think most planners in this state understand the gravity of the situation and would like more tools to help solve the affordability issue. Very complex issue but great session!

Wednesday, October 11, 2017, 12:35 p.m. CDT

Oh, Where Will the Millennials Move Next?

3

Topic is important, but the presentation from the speakers was only 30 minutes with the rest of the time devoted to questions. The panel provided information, but gave no indication of what they thought that meant going forward. Questions asked concerning what might happen, but the panel wasn't wiling to conjecture. They, being experts, should have given us their thoughts. We understand it could be wrong, but educated guesses are all we have to plan on.
