Biggest take away was to design streets for people not for cars. This is also how we're going to cut VMTs.

KEYNOTE: Rebuilding a Fire Wise Community

5

This was an emotionally gut wrenching presentation. The speaker made it clear planning was the hero to help bring back Paradise. For me personally, ti also brought back memories of hurricane Katrina, devastation and the time it takes for a community to recover. It also reminded me that planners and executives need to think prospectively about unthinkable disasters.

Regional Growth & Economic Development: Impacts on Rural Communities

5

A lively discussion about some of the challenges and opportunities that the rural areas face as they encounter growth demands. The Storey County model appears to be the most independent relative to actually grappling with some of its problems. Some of the other areas express the ambivalence of the community and the politicians in terms of ability to have adequate infrastructure for good growth.

The “It” Factor: The intersection of Heritage Tourism and Economic Development

5

Great presentation by Alicia Barber. She used some wonderful graphics to describe how history and adaptive architecture can create a true authentic environment. By digging beneath the surface of some of these buildings finding their true history and bringing that history forward.

He did an excellent job in going over where the Nevada Revised Statutes and our code of ethics overlap. He used very concrete examples of how we should approach some of these dilemmas.

Town and Gown Planning for Growing Urban Centers

5

Both presenters north and south did a good job showing how the University was working with the community. The UNLV Medical School is creating quite a footprint closer to the center of the city. UNR to the north here is expanding in what was once the sole province of downtown interests. There is now more of a connection at the housing level because of the 1,600 students who were displaced from the dorm and are now residing in Circus Circus.

Tuesday, October 15, 2019, 9:40 p.m. CDT

What is the Future of Single-Family Housing in Northern Nevada?

5

A spirited discussion about how to make single family housing more affordable as well as to address the needs of the milenials. Later in the day one of the planners was talking about attainable housing. The City Planner from Carson City was more direct about what some of the perceived conflicts are between the public and the private sector. This led to good discussion of creating a single agenda that addresses this issue.

Tuesday, October 15, 2019, 9:35 p.m. CDT

The “It” Factor: The intersection of Heritage Tourism and Economic Development

5

Alicia Barber continues to be a realistic voice on the role of renovation, preservation and innovation to achieve place. All Nevada planners need to hear her lectures and ideas. Inspirational as always.

Regional Growth & Economic Development: Impacts on Rural Communities

4

This session was helpful in connecting planners with a largely urban experience to how those same issues play out differently in low density but development pressured areas.

Tuesday, October 15, 2019, 6:12 p.m. CDT

Understanding Nevada's Planning Commission Community

5

A seasoned professional and a young eager professor did a great job telling us the current characteristics of the various planning commissions in the state. Demographically they need to become more diverse both ethnically and by gender. With this dramatic urban rural split in our state many of the comments were similar.

Planning for Mid Century: The 2050 Las Vegas Master Plan

5

The two presenters were very well prepared to discuss this topic. A Comprehensive Plan rework/update is tough in any environment, but Las Vegas is extra tough. A once totally artificial community is slowly adopting some prudent planning ideas. Water is still primary in the continuing growth of the city. The City of Las Vegas is seeing densification of the major corridors, rapid transit proposals and 5-6 story building to develop the density of Paris. They are smart people. I hope that the politicians sincerely take these recommendations to heart.

Vision Zero Truckee Meadows: Zero Pedestrian Fatalities by 2030!

4

One very passionate advocate and another very competent staff person trying to make the case that the Swedish Model of aiming for Zero Fatalities should be our goal. We are 4-5 times higher than other "civilized" countries. Not a lot of technical approaches but certainly they drove the lesson home. It has also made me again more aware of what speed on the road can do.
