For those in the Mountain West like me, the place to be this week will be Denver for the Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute's annual conference, which this year is entitled Moving Beyond Recession: What Next?. See the program here.
I will be presenting at the conference on Friday at 1:15 on a panel called Planning in the Wild West: Why Is It So Hard?. My co-presenters will be the fabulous Angie Rutherford (Sonoran Institute) and Anna Trentadue (Valley Advocates for Responsible Growth). Here is the blurb for our event:
Planning in the Wild West brings out debates based on raw emotion and talk of freedoms and rights. Sometimes, factual information that could inform planning decisions is ignored because of factors that have nothing to do with planning. However, these factors must be addressed to make progress and get meaningful public engagement. Language, culture, perceptions, and trust can often be more important than the message when talking about things like property rights. This session will look at the lessons learned in Teton County and share some hard-earned pearls of wisdom for planners working throughout the emotionally-heated debates of the West.
Stop by and see us if you are there.
