M4. Tour of Berks Nature

3

Bus driver was not familiar with the route to and location of the Berks Nature facility and got a little lost - delay in arrival time which cut into tour of the facility, grounds, and paths. Weather was not cooperative. Staff did a good job of picking up the pieces to make a worthwhile and edifying learning experience. Potential facility and program model for many communities.

Friday, November 1, 2019, 3:55 p.m. CDT

D2. Bike Montco-New Approaches to Bicycle Planning in the Suburbs

Was particularly interesting to hear how an agency with little power to implement the plan directly was able to leverage their influence. I thought the idea of surveying people coming in for jury duty was utterly genius!

E1. Tools for Getting the Entire Community Engaged

4

Some interesting ideas, but nothing particularly new...

Friday, November 1, 2019, 3:46 p.m. CDT

City and County Together Again!

4

The "SWOT" approach with 4 different speakers was creative and interesting (and suggested how this could be transferred to other communities), but it kind of glossed over some critical things. Like Reading having an incompetent and possibly corrupt mayor who was, thankfully, conspicuous by his absence.

Friday, November 1, 2019, 3:42 p.m. CDT

Liked the format, which made it more interesting than most law presentations I've been to - but it would've been more effective with a smaller group.
