Assessment #2- The Mall is Dead… Long Live the Mall!

5

Good discussion of a very relevant topic. Unfortunately, apparently there was a robbery in the hotel's jewelry shop and tear gas had been released. It affected about 1/3 of attendees towards the entrance to the hall. Fortunately, I was sitting near the front and was able to stay until the presentations were completed. Unusual event for a UCLA Conference.

Actually, Mr. Stoker couldn't attend, but Wm Fulton was the substitute, and he knows a great deal about the evolving field of city planning in California.

Keynote Speaker

5

Richard Rothstein talked about his new book, "The Color of Law" and how historically, discrimination occurred regularly in the location of affordable housing programs. I bought a copy of his book and look forward to reading about his research in more detail.

Friday, February 23, 2018, 7:08 p.m. CST

Assessment #2- Transportation Infrastructure, Mobility, Choice, and VMT

This was a panel that was especially targeted toward the planners, like myself, in the audience, as compared with lawyers. It also included the Executive Director of SCAG that has put forth a regional mobility plan.

Keynote Address: Eric Garcetti, Mayor of the City of Los Angeles

3

Mr. Garcetti did not leave time in his presentation for questions - he dashed in, was introduced, delivered his address, and dashed out. It was a promo for the City of L.A., addressed solely to City (not necessarily regional) residents/workers, no more than that.

Keynote Address: Eric Garcetti, Mayor of the City of Los Angeles

Inspirational. Reminded me why I'm a planner.

The Recalibrated General Plan: If it Were a Car, Would it Be a Tesla…or an Edsel?

3

Good topic, but came off a little flat. The speakers were very knowledgeable, but didn't have the energy to have the topic move forward. I'd enjoy a reset with perhaps some questions from the audience. Being late at the end of a long day didn't help.

Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 5:40 p.m. CST

Planning, Zoning, and Development Law Update

5

Good overview of recent changes. More of a precursor to more in the pipeline.
