Outstanding presentation and speaker.

Medical Marijuana discussion was very timely.
Thursday, March 28, 2019, 4:12 p.m. CDT
Very engaging. In addition, the question and answer period was managed very well and provided for a good dialogue between the presenter and the audience.
Thursday, March 28, 2019, 4:10 p.m. CDT
The presenter and her assistant were excellent and the visual aids were also very compelling. I also liked how the presenters are actively working on the issues presented.
Thursday, March 28, 2019, 4:07 p.m. CDT
Very interesting and I liked the direct connection the presenter had to the on-going project and topic.
Thursday, March 28, 2019, 4:05 p.m. CDT
Topics were relevant and presented in an interesting manner.
Wednesday, March 27, 2019, 1:45 p.m. CDT
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
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
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.
Wednesday, March 27, 2019, 1:40 p.m. CDT
Solid presentation. Would have liked to learn more about the outcomes related to the Maplewood case involving revoking occupancy permits for nuisance cases.
Friday, December 28, 2018, 2:21 p.m. CST
Great combination and insight. The RBG reference made this an enjoyable legal review.
Friday, December 28, 2018, 2:06 p.m. CST
Great insight by all those involved.
Wednesday, December 26, 2018, 3:49 p.m. CST
This was a very poorly structured and presented session.
Wednesday, December 26, 2018, 10:36 a.m. CST
nothing new was really shared, good reminders though on standard cases law and good examples
Wednesday, December 26, 2018, 10:19 a.m. CST
it was amazing!!!
Friday, December 14, 2018, 7:57 a.m. CST
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
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.
Thursday, December 13, 2018, 2:25 p.m. CST
I enjoyed the specificity that was used to help me understand their local issues and how they were able to address them during their project.
Thursday, December 13, 2018, 2:22 p.m. CST
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
A few great stories for a difficult obstacle for many planners in that field. Interesting concepts and ideas to carry forward.
Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 2:07 p.m. CST
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
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.
Tuesday, December 11, 2018, 4:53 p.m. CST
Very fun and VERY helpful!
Friday, December 7, 2018, 2:30 p.m. CST
Too load could not hear within plant
Thursday, December 6, 2018, 4:18 p.m. CST
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
The speaker was very animated and passionate about this topic. I appreciated her willingness to share templates and examples of how project management has been used in Salina, KS.
Thursday, December 6, 2018, 4:09 p.m. CST
A bit dry.
Thursday, December 6, 2018, 3:36 p.m. CST
Very engaging speaker. Enjoyed hearing from his experience.
Thursday, December 6, 2018, 3:35 p.m. CST
Interesting topic. I liked the use of the online engagement tool.
Thursday, December 6, 2018, 3:32 p.m. CST
Awesome speaker! Awesome examples! Would love to see more in the future.
Thursday, December 6, 2018, 3:30 p.m. CST
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
this is very topical. Seems like planners are getting thrust into the issue.
Thursday, November 29, 2018, 4:14 p.m. CST
I was really interested in this topic
Thursday, November 29, 2018, 4:10 p.m. CST
very good session, informative speakers
Thursday, November 29, 2018, 4:06 p.m. CST
nice case studies
Wednesday, November 28, 2018, 2:03 p.m. CST
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
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
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
Very good and snappy presentation on details of retail/commercial corridor planning and management. Case study on North Kansas City was really good.
Wednesday, November 28, 2018, 1:50 p.m. CST
Superb and energizing presentation that reminds us of the creativity of planning and the need to be flexible and inquisitive in our pursuit of community betterment.
Tuesday, November 27, 2018, 11:26 a.m. CST
Outstanding session that offered solutions rather than criticism.

Monday, November 5, 2018, 2:47 p.m. CST
I learned alot from this session and thought the speakers were very skilled!
Friday, November 2, 2018, 5:08 p.m. CDT
Steven Lukas was an exceptionally informative speaker on this topic. His talk was extremely detailed and precise.
Friday, November 2, 2018, 5:02 p.m. CDT
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
We had a good crowd and answered lots of questions.
Thursday, November 1, 2018, 12:22 p.m. CDT
Did not find the speech that relevant to planning.
Thursday, November 1, 2018, 12:20 p.m. CDT
It was good to hear directors from different KC Metro cities share ideas and discuss their individual and shared issues.
Wednesday, October 31, 2018, 4:37 p.m. CDT
Speakers did a nice job presenting different information, but making sure they related to one another well
Wednesday, October 31, 2018, 4:33 p.m. CDT
Having been a planner for more than 20 years, I was hoping for new ideas in team building.
