Designing Facilities for You

5

This was really useful and informative. As our town develops and takes on more public facilities, keeping up with ADA compliance will become more of a task for us. This is a new subject for me and much to consider and file away for future use.

Bike Facility Designs

5

A great session showing how bike/ped advocates and state transportation agencies can collaborate and be pragmatic to build better infrastructure for everybody in the course of planning and executing "normal" road projects. Little details make a big difference to cyclists and pedestrians!

Crash Info Data and How it Helps Prevent Future Ones

5

This was a really comprehensive overview of how the health department and VTrans are looking at the safety (and cyclist comfort) aspects of cycling in Vermont and on state highways. I hope in two years we can talk about some planned or completed improvements to some of the high-stress areas identified by the study!

Zoning: Getting it Right for Your Town

5

Joe Minicozza of Urban 3 provides convincing and compelling cases for finding the right fit of businesses, services and housing to make the revitalization efforts for downtowns successful. Joe is a great speaker, story teller and his enthusiasm for creating great places is powerfully motivating. Both his presentations as Keynote and Session Speaker were worth the cost of the conference. Traveled 3 hours to attend this conference from Upstate NY .... worth every mile of drive-time! Thank you for featuring him at your conference.

BuildMaine: Donald Shoup

Donald Shoup is practically a rock star in the planning world. He has advanced a paradigm shift from the common practice of allowing the "car park" to dominate and control development patterns in the U.S. He is also an excellent speaker.
