I learned some new information. Found it helpful and informative. Not a super structured format which worked well for the crowd. Very engaging.

Wednesday, March 27, 2019, 1:44 p.m. CDT

Biodiversity

3

Somewhat informative about the work going on the map biodiversity. They are in the beginning phases of their effort, so the lecture became a working session on how to engage planners/elected officials and how to provide them with useful tools.

Wednesday, March 27, 2019, 1:42 p.m. CDT

Mobility for All

Loved most of the presenters. Though the project was very abstract and design focused, I appreciated their enthusiasm and their different ways of approaching analysis and problem solving.

“Can the Notorious RBG Save the Planet?” Environmental & Land Use Law Update

1

The presenters did not connect with the audience at all. Unlike the ethics session, these two presenters just did not have the skills to facilitate this presentation.

Friday, December 14, 2018, 7:50 a.m. CST

Ethics Case of the Year

5

The presenters did a wonderful job of keeping the audience engaged during this session which is not always easy to do when talking about ethics.

The Louisburg Master Trails Plan: High Impact Community Engagement for an Implementable Plan

I greatly enjoyed the concept of being proactive to love one's city. The examples he provided from around the country were extremely helpful and I also appreciated the way he framed his message so that I could connect to what he was saying.

Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 2:11 p.m. CST

Legislative Forum: Legislative Activities at the State and Federal Level

4

Good info but the speaker (Jay) apparently biased in political party. Good speaker and presenter but there was no indication of wanting to work with a certain political party. Unprofessional comments.

Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 2:02 p.m. CST

Tour of Kansas City Transit Investments

5

The speakers consistently added more insightful knowledge as the tour went on. The bus tour was very helpful as a student new to KC area and transportation issues and topics.

“Can the Notorious RBG Save the Planet?” Environmental & Land Use Law Update

3

This session was interesting. I felt like the speakers started out really well by making sure that everyone was reminded about what certain terms meant, etc. However, by about midway through the session they realized that they were behind schedule and reverted to talking like "lawyers" rather than presenting in a fashion that non-legal people can understand. They did not make it through everything that they had set out to do.

Thursday, December 6, 2018, 4:12 p.m. CST

Project Management for Planners – Managing Upwards and Onwards

How a Seed Changed Its Surroundings: The 39 North AgTech District

3

Interesting topic. The speakers were not incredibly organized. This topic would have been more easier to grasp if we had been in St Louis and able to go on a mobile tour.

Thursday, November 29, 2018, 4:15 p.m. CST

Short Term Rentals and the Sharing Economy

this is very topical. Seems like planners are getting thrust into the issue.

nice case studies

Wednesday, November 28, 2018, 2:03 p.m. CST

Planning for Industrial Uses: Challenges and Benefits of Integrating Industrial Land Uses with Non-Industrial uses

3

Some potentially quite good content, but delivered with insufficient enthusiasm and with often difficult-to-decipher slides. The challenges of industrial expansion in mostly developed areas is a great theme, and I think the lessons learned were strong, but the presentation was sufficiently sluggish that I lost interest now and then.

Wednesday, November 28, 2018, 1:59 p.m. CST

Trail-Oriented Development

4

Very nice and creative look at how trails can and should influence land use changes. We are accustomed to road and transit impacts, but trails are having an increasingly relevant impact on quality of life and community development. This was a well-done case study approach to expanding this "TOD" theory.

Wednesday, November 28, 2018, 1:55 p.m. CST

Ideological Blind Spots: Addressing Bias with 4-Dimensional Planning

5

Matt does a fantastic job with this program year after year with updates that are relevant inside a theory of planning that emphatically reminds you why you are a planner.

Wednesday, November 28, 2018, 1:52 p.m. CST

One Corridor | One District: Urban Mobility Strategies

Very good and snappy presentation on details of retail/commercial corridor planning and management. Case study on North Kansas City was really good.

Friday, November 2, 2018, 5:02 p.m. CDT

SmartMoves Partnership

4

It would have been much better if Gerald Williams and only one other person spoke. Mr. Williams had to speed through some very informative content. Even one of the other speakers said how unfortunate it was that we could not go through all of the content of Mr. Williams' slides.

Thursday, November 1, 2018, 12:26 p.m. CDT

It was good to hear directors from different KC Metro cities share ideas and discuss their individual and shared issues.
