Mobile Workshops: Solving the Floods

5

Planning issues are best seen to understand how policy and action shapes them. Seeing both how the City of Portage has implemented natural drain systems that have a dual-function as a water containment/management system and local greenspace is a prime example of how to implement placemaking through both city beautification and utilitarianism.

The speaker was great, and the presentation was entertaining, but once again, there weren't any ideas on how to fix things, just a command to, "go to work." If there is a way to fix the huge problem of income discrepancy, then I would love to hear that.

It's hard to make temporary land uses a worthwhile topic - however I think Patrick did a good job. My primary complaint was the limited seating in the session room.
