    Florida Growth Management Course

    Just wanted to know if anyone is going to go to the 21st Annual Growth Management and Environmental Permitting Short Course - March 2 - 4, 2005, in Orlando? Maybe there can be a lae-fest in Orlando?

    Also, is anyone going to go the DCA conference in Gainesville on Growth Management initiatives on February 10th? They are going to have the current DCA Secretary as well as past ones.

    I'm trying to convince the development services director to send me to the Growth Management Course but it being so close to the APA National, I may not be able to pull it off. If not, I'll probably send one of my planners.

    We are in such a budget crunch due to the hurricanes...even thought the short course is here, thus no hotel bills...my dept won't spring for it. But I'll be here to party with whoever can come to town!

    I think our executive director is going to be attending the FAPA thing. I would love to go but I have a bit on my plate right now.

    I typically go to the Short Course - if you haven't ever attended - it's pretty good.

    Won't be going this year. Trying to go to APA in SF.

    Please let me know if there is any new talk about the RPCs and their "new" role. Who is speaking at your conference?

    Ok, if there is mention. However, it is more of a report card of "how successful it has been", rather than current news so that may not be a topic. In fact it is called "Evaluation of Growth Management in Florida"

    I will post the line up tomorrow.

    It was mostly an academic assessment with scholars from around the country who have studied the FLA GM Regime. It was very good, with some excellent papers that will be making up a book soon to be published on the matter. I will point you to that when it is published. 8-|

    Thanks H for the info. I don't believe anyone in my office knew about the weekend's seminar.

    You can find out more info here

    I attended this last year and also went to the course in Marco Island. Decided to take a break this year.
