Planning Directors from the Arkansas cities of Bentonville, Conway, Fayetteville, and Hot Springs will participate in a roundtable discussion. These four cities have experienced significant and unique transformations over the past five to twenty plus years. The Planning Directors will speak for approximately five minutes about their community and the significant transformations that have occurred. A moderator will then ask a series of questions. During the roundtable, attendees will have the option to submit additional questions to a side panel to filter and pass to the moderator. Questions/topics include:


·         What (project, series of events, community plan, private investment, etc.) has made the biggest impact on your community and how did the Planning Department play a role?

·         What is the biggest challenge due to your community's growth and how is your respective Planning Department helping to overcome it?

·         Experience and/or advice to address the “tiny house” movement in zoning and building codes.


·         Experience and/or advice when working with appointed and elected officials to achieve a common goal and/or vision.
