Excellent panel discussion!
Monday, December 30, 2019, 7:19 p.m. CST
being a local to this area, I found it interesting and could test in my own mind the legitimacy of what was presented, most of it accurate.
Monday, December 30, 2019, 7:15 p.m. CST
I appreciated the cultural differences in how front yards are viewed and used.

This was one of the most amazing ethics sessions I've ever experienced. Even told them so in front of everybody present. They applauded the panel participants. The game show format worked, because it is was clear they put a lot of time in preparation. It wasn't perfect, but we all learned from the experience. We were reminded that we should look at the code more than we collectively do, and never assume anything.

I missed part 1, and wished I had attended that session. However, it was interesting to hear the pros and cons to managed retreat policies and what Del Mar is doing.
Monday, December 30, 2019, 6:36 p.m. CST
I was excited to learn of several new ways to streamline good projects out of the CEQA conundrum.
Monday, December 30, 2019, 6:31 p.m. CST
I'm always impressed when I experience a panel with a former student as a participant. In this case she was the Moderator (Leeanne Singleton). The "Compass" was a creative theme and represented the conference topic well (A Resilient Future). The session gave me some hope, which is increasingly in short supply today.
Monday, December 30, 2019, 6:08 p.m. CST
Thank you for highlighting ways to streamline a project's CEQA process through exemptions!
Monday, December 30, 2019, 6:05 p.m. CST
Too late more cities and counties had an opportunity to utilize Opportunity Zones - very informative, but too late to really utilize them going forward
Monday, December 30, 2019, 5:54 p.m. CST
Finally, someone with courage to take on the NIMBYs. I only wish Mr. Weiner would take on those that extort the system using CEQA to gain PLAs
Monday, December 30, 2019, 5:51 p.m. CST
I was disappointed in this, in fact insulted. Things are much better and bigotry much less than presented. I admit I am a male and white, but I see efforts in many places to bring diversity to our profession.
Monday, December 30, 2019, 5:18 p.m. CST
About time we turn our attention to opportunities like these. Brian's expertise on similar projects brought forth common sense ideas.
Monday, December 30, 2019, 5:14 p.m. CST
I found this was one of my most enlightening sessions. The concept of the missing middle was a new term, defining the problem in a couple of words.
Monday, December 30, 2019, 5:06 p.m. CST
Really well done. Interactive, fun and informative.
Monday, December 30, 2019, 4:41 p.m. CST
Monday, December 30, 2019, 4:32 p.m. CST
Great examples of public art and spaces!
Monday, December 30, 2019, 4:30 p.m. CST
Rivasplata was an excellent presenter!
Monday, December 30, 2019, 4:28 p.m. CST
I enjoyed listening to my colleague Dave Barquist, with years of housing element experience.
Monday, December 30, 2019, 4:26 p.m. CST
These types of workshops with current leaders presenting their experiences are always beneficial to future planners!
Monday, December 30, 2019, 4:23 p.m. CST
Room was overflowing! needed more chairs! very informative!
Good session that's conscience-raising. As a planner of color, I liked the idea of examining implicit bias. It's something that's too often overlooked, in my view.
Monday, December 30, 2019, 4:21 p.m. CST
Always take away much from this session, the CEQA portion of the update
Monday, December 30, 2019, 4:17 p.m. CST
it was good to see Lester still being active in APA!
Monday, December 30, 2019, 4:15 p.m. CST
the HCD speaker was excellent!
Monday, December 30, 2019, 4:03 p.m. CST
Very informative about the upcoming changes, particularly with the implications of the requirements of SB 743
Monday, December 30, 2019, 3:54 p.m. CST
Tour was very informative and touched on the challenges of the project and how they were solved.
Monday, December 30, 2019, 12:18 p.m. CST
This was helpful to my understanding of this topic
Sunday, December 29, 2019, 10:35 p.m. CST
This was one of the most fun sessions in memory while providing substantive helpful insight from peers.
Sunday, December 29, 2019, 10:22 p.m. CST
Great speakers :)
Sunday, December 29, 2019, 10:11 p.m. CST
This session was informative and inspirational. Next time I'd suggest visiting fewer sites to get the point across.
Sunday, December 29, 2019, 10:04 p.m. CST
Excellent session. Wasn't sure what to expect from the course. Found it very revealing.
Sunday, December 29, 2019, 10 p.m. CST
We should have Senator Weiner back every year.
Friday, December 27, 2019, 10:53 p.m. CST
Viewed on You Tube

Loved the "how many cookies?" versus "how many eggs in your cookies?" analogy for density. I used this (with credit to Kate), both in a Planning Commission presentation and as a Herald quote. Very effective communicator. Great book-end with Scott Wiener!
Thursday, December 26, 2019, 3 p.m. CST
Clearly an honest discussion and earnest desire to see the situation from multiple perspectives.
Thursday, December 26, 2019, 2:37 p.m. CST
Mr. Wiener's focus on how density regulations and SF zoning are an extension of Planning's past discrimination was a powerful truth that thread its way through a majority of sessions at this year's CA APA conference. Also, in his willingness to suggest that Planners can be obstructionists, Representative Wiener opened up a new call to action. He's paired his words with political action that can help motivate us to be more thoughtful, inventive, and bold in opening discussion and fostering change in our local communities. We can lead difficult conversations and focus zoning flexibility; or entice developers to take advantage of state-empowered flexibility and effectively remove community input from the equation.
Friday, December 13, 2019, 1:14 a.m. CST
Very great discussion.
Thursday, December 12, 2019, 3:11 p.m. CST
Wish this was also recorded as a video.
Wednesday, December 4, 2019, 12:42 p.m. CST
Very informative on the effort by architects and urban designers on doing one day workshop for State Street.
Wednesday, December 4, 2019, 12:38 p.m. CST
Eye opening presentation on the housing crisis in California!!
Sunday, December 1, 2019, 7:15 p.m. CST
This session provided a good overview of legislation that impacts APA members working for jurisdictions, with the most focus on changes to housing legislation. Very timely presentation, although given the time of the year there were many areas where legislation had been approved but not (yet) signed by Governor Newsom. It was good to know that seminars are being held to update planners on laws that will take effect in 2020.
This was rated with four stars as the livestream option to view the webinar did not work. In the future, simply recording and offering this to members as a free benefit to inform practitioners would be very helpful.
Sunday, December 1, 2019, 2:41 p.m. CST
I liked the variety of topics presented and how they can be relevant to local issues.
Thursday, November 28, 2019, 10:21 p.m. CST
Very information and current as to the new laws affecting large home daycares.
Thursday, November 28, 2019, 10:20 p.m. CST
This session gave an eye opening understanding of how various cultures influence the front yard of communities.
Thursday, November 28, 2019, 10:17 p.m. CST
Great example suburban City of Monrovia utilizing Uber to augment local transit that is transferable.
Thursday, November 28, 2019, 10:13 p.m. CST
Topic I expected to be covered was not. The title would have eluded to what skill sets and tasks were needed in the planning office of the future.
Sunday, November 24, 2019, 5:33 p.m. CST
Wednesday, November 20, 2019, 1:23 p.m. CST
