I have heard Bryan speak before, but this time was a little unfocused. Still inspiring.

A little dry but good.

Census Train Wreck: How state and local government can keep the 2020 census on the rails

5

Great Census information; it was wonderful to have the state demographer there because she's an excellent speaker

Friday, October 25, 2019, 2:33 p.m. CDT

Opening Plenary: Design Justice - Form Follows Fiction

4

Main speaker was great; we need to be talking about equity issues more in the planning field. It was also nice to have a design-focused, visually engaging presentation. The Aspen Skiing Company component was unnecessary and did not add to the presentation.

Friday, October 25, 2019, 2:30 p.m. CDT

Saving Water: Tips and Tools for Integrating Water Conservation and Efficiency into Your Land Use Policies

5

Great information on how to integrate water into land use planning; panelists are clearly experts in the field; facilitated break out sessions helped us talk about our community's issues and with planners from all around the state.

Friday, October 25, 2019, 2:28 p.m. CDT

Charge Up: Evolving Mobility in Colorado

5

Exciting panel about hot topic EV and electric scooter issues. Panelists were great at answering audience questions.

Friday, October 25, 2019, 2:26 p.m. CDT

Taming the Urban Arterial

3

Very car-centric planning process and presentation. Not an example of a progressive, future-proof planning project. Presenters were a little defensive when transit and bike/pedestrian infrastructure issues were brought up by audience members.

Friday, October 25, 2019, 12:38 p.m. CDT

Small Towns - Big Impacts

5

I thought all these speakers were excellent. I am glad to see an acknowledgement that many of us planners work in small towns. Things are just a little bit different in a little town!

Friday, October 25, 2019, 12:35 p.m. CDT

ETHICS: Climb to Safety - Higher Ground for the Ethical Planner

5

I always like the real-life skits. It resonates with me because it is the day-to-day reality in the life of a planner.

Friday, October 25, 2019, 12:33 p.m. CDT

The Small Lot Limbo: How Low Can You Go?

5

I am using things I learned in this session in one of my current planning projects. Good speakers with high energy.

Friday, October 25, 2019, 12:31 p.m. CDT

Keynote Address: Mapping the Dollars and Sense of Land Use Patterns

5

I really liked this one. It is such an interesting way to look at communities as incorporated entities as it relates to costs, revenues and land use. I will follow up with this concept as time goes on.

Friday, October 25, 2019, 12:27 p.m. CDT

Cutting Edge Colorado Comprehensive Plans

5

I really liked this one. High energy and good information.

Friday, October 25, 2019, 12:25 p.m. CDT

Opening Plenary: Design Justice - Form Follows Fiction

3

Interesting but it needed a nuts and bolts follow up after the speaker (who was very good) as far as how we, as planners, should think about this day to day.

Friday, October 25, 2019, 12:22 p.m. CDT

Mind your RFPs and Qs

4

I thought this was very relevant and important as many planners deal with consultants. I liked hearing both sides of the issues.

Friday, October 25, 2019, 12:21 p.m. CDT

Closing Session: Elevated Planning Comes to an End

5

It was a great way to finish the conference. Fast, funny and relevant. And loved the interaction with the attendees. That needs to happen more during the conference.

Thursday, October 24, 2019, 4:48 p.m. CDT

Planning for the Future of Transit in Colorado

4

I learned among other things, the pervasiveness if declines in ridership, along with some causes and the shortage of easy answers.

Thursday, October 24, 2019, 4:42 p.m. CDT

Charge Up: Evolving Mobility in Colorado

4

I learned some things and this session prompted some thinking on my part- I shared back some insights with our Dept. when I got back to work

Thursday, October 24, 2019, 4:36 p.m. CDT

Introduction to the Planning for Equity Policy Guide

3

This session got off to a rocky start due to some logistical problems, but the scenarios and discussions were good, once it got going

Thursday, October 24, 2019, 2:42 p.m. CDT

The Small Lot Limbo: How Low Can You Go?

3

Not what I thought it would be. I think it would have been much more interesting if they had taken us through the design process for one site and looked at the opportunities and constraints of each density level, instead of saying here is a 5/acre density and here is an 8/acre.

Thursday, October 24, 2019, 2:31 p.m. CDT

Keynote Address: Mapping the Dollars and Sense of Land Use Patterns

5

Wish I could give 10 stars

Thursday, October 24, 2019, 2:21 p.m. CDT

A Metro Denver Regional Vision for People and Nature

Seemed like this session was a little premature, and only half a session really. I would've waited until it was past the research phase and into development.

Monday, October 21, 2019, 11:51 a.m. CDT

The Small Lot Limbo: How Low Can You Go?

5

Exactly the information we needed at this time. There is a lot of discussion about housing need and more affordable market-rate housing, but little about the nuts and bolts of making that happen in a market where land and water costs are so high. This was fantastic.

Monday, October 21, 2019, 11:48 a.m. CDT

LAW: 2019 Legislative Update

5

In-depth and useful update of current issues -- and there were a lot of them this year.

Tuesday, October 8, 2019, 12:04 p.m. CDT

Keeping Calm with Contentious Crowds

Really loved how the speaker used examples of public meeting archetypes (ie: the person that goes on forever, the person who is really upset and won't listen, etc.) and gave concrete example of what to do and what not to do.

Tuesday, October 8, 2019, 12:03 p.m. CDT

ETHICS: Climb to Safety - Higher Ground for the Ethical Planner

5

Really loved the skits and actors, and how they addressed some answers are foggy/muddy without a clear-cut "correct" answer. Made everything very accessible!

Tuesday, October 8, 2019, 12:02 p.m. CDT

The Small Lot Limbo: How Low Can You Go?

4

Came mostly from a developer's perspective -- would like to have heard more from jurisdictions.
