It was an interesting departure from the usual regulatory-focused topics of planning conferences. It was also a pleasant celebration of the strengths of the Midwest.

Good points by Ms. Cotter: Current state of disaster management is messy; Her summary about what was learned, especially at the local level; the country lost its culture of resilence after WWII; and Federal govt should take lead for disaster management.
Innovative Responses at the Local Level

Dick Sloan had some good points and supporting graphics. He provided applied practices to explain how land is farmed and its impacts on soils and flooding. One lesson of Joe OHern: do not allow "duplication of benefits." Unfortuneately, Mr. Enshayan's message was lost since he read his speach and never looked up. Some graphics would have helped.
