Evidence Matters: Using Data Effectively to Elevate the Essentiality of Planning


Thursday July 19, 2018 | Lansing, Michigan

1.75 AICP CM credits | $30 Member Registration fee | $15 Student Member  | $45 Non-members  
4:00 p.m. to 6:00 pm. Workshop
6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Continue the conversation over dinner (on your own) with Scott Bernstein

Increasingly, the practice of planning requires the setting of goals against which progress can be tracked. Public funding sources will increasingly require performance scorecards and dashboards to qualify state and local governments for revenue sharing and apportionments; private sources will require evidence of economic benefits to underwrite financing; impact investors, whether market-based or philanthropic are a good example of how having the capacity to track performance can result in new funding sources. Case studies will be presented related to transportation, stormwater management and energy efficiency.
