Even for planners who slogged through previous RHNA cycles, the 6th RHNA cycle requirements are daunting — as this session made abundantly clear.
Wednesday, March 25, 2020, 6:15 p.m. CDT
The absolute best teacher is real-world experience. Lessons learned and imparted by the experts on this panel, who personally experienced the tragic events and post-event realities, were invaluable!
Wednesday, March 25, 2020, 6:11 p.m. CDT
Super informative session! It’s easy to think you have all the bases covered with your inclusionary housing requirements, until you hear about others’ journeys and options they’ve put into play.
Wednesday, March 25, 2020, 6:06 p.m. CDT
Of the many salient take-always from this session, I was most taken by the clear understanding that Calif. law will now require objectivity in local standards, as applied to housing projects.
Wednesday, March 25, 2020, 5:57 p.m. CDT
With the enormous amount of change occurring regarding housing laws, attending this session was an absolute must, and it didn’t disappoint. The session was absolutely FULL of helpful information about the latest housing laws!
Wednesday, March 25, 2020, 5:53 p.m. CDT
Ali Mir was especially inspiring and informative.

Senator Wiener’s availability and participation at the annual California Chapter APA conference was most welcome; however, Senator Wiener seemed to be only semi-receptive to suggestions & comments from the AICP audience members. He should have recognized us as key stakeholders (well informed and knowledgeable on the topic!), and should have more readily understood those who spoke & asked questions as the true experts on the “housing crisis” topic.

Very dynamic. Great way to close the conference. Anyone that didn't stay missed out.
Friday, March 6, 2020, 9:05 a.m. CST
Felt a little like a 'book' sales speach, but the project and process discuss was good.
Friday, March 6, 2020, 9:02 a.m. CST
Reinforced challenges of 'natural' disasters and their recovery processes. Can we rebuild smarter.
Friday, March 6, 2020, 8:55 a.m. CST
The specific conversations from the jurisdiction was good. Having real world information is always good.
Friday, March 6, 2020, 8:51 a.m. CST
Reinforced how challenging SLR along the CA Coast is going to be. No consensus on way forward.
Friday, March 6, 2020, 8:43 a.m. CST
Fun and entertaining way to address an often dry subject. Great dialog among the participants.
Friday, March 6, 2020, 8:42 a.m. CST
Great discussion on Data vs Information and value of identifying WHAT you are trying to accomplish before you start collecting data.
Friday, March 6, 2020, 8:39 a.m. CST
Excellent conversation of large scale SLR / Climate trends on DoD and the various methods being utilized to try and address.
Friday, March 6, 2020, 8:35 a.m. CST
Each speaker had a good unique message to deliver. Helpful insight to the variability within our communities.
Friday, March 6, 2020, 8:32 a.m. CST
Insight into regulatory issues associated with Micro-grid development by a municipality was great.
Friday, March 6, 2020, 8:29 a.m. CST
Senator Wiener was a dynamic speaker and presented a great message. The discussion on Housing and the dynamics of affordability were good.
Friday, March 6, 2020, 8:25 a.m. CST
Great presentation on the newer web tools available to inform communities on SLR. The discussion on the evolving State Tidelands footprint was good.
Friday, March 6, 2020, 8:19 a.m. CST
Liked the approach of considering the full Life Cycle of Emissions. Production vs Consumption localities will continue to gain momentum.
Monday, February 17, 2020, 12:12 p.m. CST
Timely. For future sessions, perhaps cover the retail, mfg, lab and delivery issues, and differing community reactions, best practices, etc.
Monday, February 17, 2020, 12:06 p.m. CST
Useful information, as I work in a city with historic downtown properties, near transit and with a green energy bent. Trevor is an excellent presenter.
Monday, February 17, 2020, 12:01 p.m. CST
Useful, as my jurisdiction is looking into public art on walls, crosswalks, utility boxes, etc. in downtown.
Monday, February 17, 2020, 11:53 a.m. CST
Helpful, but I believe the session tried to do too much in one session. Still valuable. Two sessions would have been great, with the second focusing on working with state and feds to improve long term economic vitality and resiliency.
Monday, February 17, 2020, 11:50 a.m. CST
Should be required for every planner. A bit difficult this year due to all the housing changes and the in-flux nature of various bills. Presenters did a good job of capturing the pertinent issues.
Monday, February 17, 2020, 11:48 a.m. CST
I don't always agree with the Senator, but this was informative and timely.
Monday, February 17, 2020, 11:47 a.m. CST
This is always a great session and this was no exception.
Wednesday, January 29, 2020, 4:14 p.m. CST
Beautiful and Informative! Hopefully the Preserve representative will take the Planners advice to use the preserve for educational learning and projects for under-represented populations in the Santa Barbara/L.A. counties.
Wednesday, January 29, 2020, 4:10 p.m. CST
Seeing Santa Barbara's working class neighborhoods as part of the tour was good to see as too often, these neighborhoods are missed when one visits the city.
Wednesday, January 29, 2020, 4:05 p.m. CST
Very timely and interesting. Only thing missing was the IPA's since the session was in a pub
Wednesday, January 29, 2020, 4:02 p.m. CST
It should have been mandatory to have to participate in both Part 1 and Part 2.
Wednesday, January 29, 2020, 3:56 p.m. CST
Good examples of community engagement best practices, particularly from San Francisco planner. More diversity of the panelists would have been nice however, particularly representing Oakland.
Saturday, January 25, 2020, 4:09 p.m. CST
Must attend session for all planners.
Saturday, January 25, 2020, 3:59 p.m. CST
An essential session at every conference. The speakers are super prepared and share details.
Saturday, January 25, 2020, 3:56 p.m. CST
Senator is challenging the profession. Awesome!
Saturday, January 25, 2020, 3:55 p.m. CST
Always one of the best features of the opening day and conference overall. Speakers challenge the audience.
Thursday, January 23, 2020, 1:09 a.m. CST
Great hearing from Sara Buizer about Hayward.
Thursday, January 23, 2020, 1:06 a.m. CST
wonderful diversity of the panel with such varied perspectives
Tuesday, January 21, 2020, 11:28 a.m. CST
Best session of the conference!
Tuesday, January 21, 2020, 11:07 a.m. CST
The cities represented are examples of cities that have NOT been providing housing at a rate to match their population and employment growth, so it was baffling why these cities were chosen to discuss leadership in housing - these cities have been obstructing housing growth and density. The panel made no sense.
Wednesday, January 8, 2020, 11:25 a.m. CST
Great skills to utilize in practice.
Wednesday, January 8, 2020, 11:23 a.m. CST
Didn't agree with everything he said, but I appreciate his candor.
Wednesday, January 8, 2020, 11:20 a.m. CST
Interesting look at diversity in the profession. Next, I would like to explore the publics reaction to diversity in the profession.
Wednesday, January 8, 2020, 11:18 a.m. CST
Learned great skills to apply to planning career.
Monday, January 6, 2020, 10:39 a.m. CST
Great perspective from an industry icon in preparation of General Plans.
Monday, January 6, 2020, 10:21 a.m. CST
What fun. All the laughs of Wait, wait, don't tell me, while learning about ethics.
Monday, January 6, 2020, 10:18 a.m. CST
This session provided both a legal and practitioners perspective of establishing objective design guidelines.
Monday, January 6, 2020, 10:14 a.m. CST
Another excellent presentation. I really enjoy hearing about the updates from practitioners.
Monday, January 6, 2020, 10:11 a.m. CST
Excellent as always.
Thursday, January 2, 2020, 6:56 p.m. CST
I normally don't leave comments on mobile workshops or sessions, but this was the best mobile workshop I have ever been on. Perfectly executed.
