good opening session

I wish there was more that planners can do than simply invite our State legislators and reps into our planning process. If this changes I want us to know how to help more with this very important Michigan issue.

Interesting but not particularly useful information.
Tuesday, April 30, 2019, 2:59 p.m. CDT

Monday, April 29, 2019, 11:08 a.m. CDT
I like idea of having these Plenary sessions, summarizing what we learned form the days presentation.
Monday, April 29, 2019, 11:06 a.m. CDT
Recreational Marijuana is clearly a hot topic in Michigan. Our community recently just opted out, but would like to revisit the ordinance to opt in upon the State of Michigan establishing the rules. Having the Director of Marijuana Regulation, Legal expertise, and a local community to share their experience and relation to this new law, was extremely helpful.
I intend on bringing this information and utilizing it effectively towards a comprehensive solution.

Jon Lynch is always a great presenter. He engages the audience and involves them to participate. You'll be able to take something from his presentations and apply it to daily practice, particularly the Leadership and Management topic.

I really enjoyed this session. The one particular topic that has eluded myself, and other planners, if the operation of municipal finance. I find myself also on the learning curve, and with this information, I will be able to provide a better service to my community, the residents, my coworkers, and developers.
Very pleased to see MAP include this topic.

The speaker was very well informed and brought forward a new perspective of equity considerations in the planning process. She answered the audience questions thoroughly.
Monday, February 25, 2019, 8:57 a.m. CST
A very comprehensive overview of the transportation planning and programming process in Michigan. If there was more time, additional content, such as how social and environmental considerations are included in the process.
Monday, February 25, 2019, 7:49 a.m. CST
Not very interesting.
Friday, February 22, 2019, 8:12 p.m. CST
The data she presented did not clearly differentiate that it was lack of transportation that made people unhealthy. While I believe it, many of the communities could be unhealthy from several other factors and she didn't bring that up-- such as poor eating habits and lack of healthcare.

Thoughtful and data-filled presentation reminding us as planners that we must be cognizant of our past failings at creating equitable transportation systems and and look at future transportation innovations through an equity lens.
Monday, January 7, 2019, 12:11 p.m. CST
Innovative thinking that is very much needed.
