Innovative thinking that is very much needed.

Monday, October 29, 2018, 2:11 p.m. CDT
great session - very timely
Monday, October 29, 2018, 9:48 a.m. CDT
Very basic information. Was looking for much more.
Tuesday, October 23, 2018, 8:16 p.m. CDT
The guidebook that was discussed needs more rigorous peer review.
Tuesday, October 23, 2018, 7:23 a.m. CDT
It was ok, but did not find the information as inspirational as intended. Many statements of fact that did not seem to be supported by empirical evidence.
Tuesday, October 23, 2018, 7:20 a.m. CDT
Information was too simplistic. The session description indicated it would discuss a market analysis, but never did. In addition, the speaker did not have enough information to use the entire time allotted and we were dismissed over 3o minutes early.

Outstanding presentation. Passionately and informatively presented.
Monday, October 8, 2018, 12:33 p.m. CDT
Great wrap up.
Monday, October 8, 2018, 12:27 p.m. CDT
Great examples and reminders.
Monday, October 8, 2018, 12:26 p.m. CDT
Engaging and informative.
Monday, October 8, 2018, 12:25 p.m. CDT
Great kick off.
Monday, October 8, 2018, 12:23 p.m. CDT
Interesting and good information provided.
Monday, October 8, 2018, 12:21 p.m. CDT
Well done and interesting project and approach.
Monday, October 8, 2018, 12:18 p.m. CDT
Great update regarding current issues facing planners.

Bruce Katz gets it. And he really knows what he's talking about when he discusses the local area. I'm used to out-of-state speakers speak in generalities and hypotheticals, so to hear him answer questions with specifics was refreshing.
Friday, October 5, 2018, 10 p.m. CDT
Parking is such a tough topic to approach in a new way in a post-Shoup world. I'm not sure the information here was entirely new, but it brought a high-level conversation down to ground level by looking at some real-world examples, which I think helps.
Friday, October 5, 2018, 9:57 p.m. CDT
Interesting information--I think in a few years it would be interesting to follow this one up with a case study after gathering some longitudinal data.
Friday, October 5, 2018, 9:54 p.m. CDT
I really enjoyed this session. Grand Rapids really has done amazing work with its transportation infrastructure and working toward greater equity for its citizens. I was impressed by the GIS analysis--really fine-grained detail and a lot of useful, actionable data.
Friday, October 5, 2018, 9:51 p.m. CDT
The title is perhaps a bit sanguine, but the topic is indispensable.
Friday, October 5, 2018, 9:50 p.m. CDT
A couple of the speakers did a really nice job in this one. it was nice to attend a forum where the discussion of food systems and agriculture truly ran the gamut from urban to rural.
Friday, October 5, 2018, 9:47 p.m. CDT
Some very interesting concepts were presented for the mall redevelopment, and I hope to see it happen, as someone who lives nearby. I do wonder about the market feasibility of the concepts shown on the plans, though. SE Michigan's growth rate will need to pick up some to support that.
Friday, October 5, 2018, 3:34 p.m. CDT
Sensational tour. Lots of practical ideas and inspiration. Great tour leaders.
Friday, October 5, 2018, 3:32 p.m. CDT
Sensational tour and lots of practical ideas.
Friday, October 5, 2018, 3:29 p.m. CDT
This presentation was pretty good, but not great. In Michigan, we all realize the value of action on the local level, and most of us are not waiting around for the Federal or State Government to save us, but I guess it is good to be reminded of that. More Michigan examples would help.
Friday, October 5, 2018, 3:24 p.m. CDT
I got very little out of this session, partly because the room was very uncomfortable with not enough seating and tables, seats squashed together, and I could barely hear the speaker.
Friday, October 5, 2018, 3:18 p.m. CDT
Great, technical content.
Friday, October 5, 2018, 3:14 p.m. CDT
This speaker was enthusiastic, but the content was just OK. She made a serious blunder by disparaging "Old, white men". We are hopefully past the time of disparaging persons based on age, skin color, and gender.
Friday, October 5, 2018, 3:09 p.m. CDT
The intended outcomes of this session were not clear. The speakers were enthusiastic, but the content seemed a bit basic.
Friday, October 5, 2018, 3:03 p.m. CDT
Good content. Practical and informative.
Thursday, October 4, 2018, 1:37 p.m. CDT
Outstanding presentation. Best of the conference!

The presentation by the City Manager of Sterling Heights was informative...I happened to drive through there the following weekend and could see the improvements that have been made.
Thursday, October 4, 2018, 1:33 p.m. CDT
Good practical recommendations!
Thursday, October 4, 2018, 1:31 p.m. CDT
The one presentation that was applicable to my jurisdiction.
Thursday, October 4, 2018, 1:30 p.m. CDT
Thursday, October 4, 2018, 1:28 p.m. CDT
Presentation could have used more visuals...pictures...diagrams.
Thursday, October 4, 2018, 1:27 p.m. CDT
Really interesting development ideas
Thursday, October 4, 2018, 1:25 p.m. CDT
Wednesday, October 3, 2018, 7:52 a.m. CDT
SEMCOG is doing some amazing things to ensure our natural resources are a cornerstone of modern development practices
Wednesday, October 3, 2018, 7:49 a.m. CDT
Eye opening session about the realities we face in Michigan with attracting these major economic development projects
Wednesday, October 3, 2018, 7:47 a.m. CDT
Incredibly engaging session. Excellent examples of how to transform neighborhoods. More sessions like this one.
Monday, October 1, 2018, 12:43 p.m. CDT
I was moderator
Monday, October 1, 2018, 12:39 p.m. CDT
Monday, October 1, 2018, 12:31 p.m. CDT
Monday, October 1, 2018, 12:29 p.m. CDT
Great information for where ordinances need to be kept up to date.
Monday, October 1, 2018, 12:25 p.m. CDT
Excellent data. I wish the session lasted longer, it was so good.
Monday, October 1, 2018, 12:22 p.m. CDT
Very good content but need more real word application of how to make case and implement
Monday, October 1, 2018, 11:50 a.m. CDT
Great session, should be a repeat with new panelists annually
Monday, October 1, 2018, 11:47 a.m. CDT
Format was very awkward.
