What You Can Expect at the 2014 Planning Commissioners Academy

January 8, 2014
The holidays have come and gone and now it’s time to start looking forward to the 2014 Planning Commissioners Academy! 
This year’s Planning Commissioners Academy will be held March 26–28 at the Marriott San Francisco Airport Waterfront Hotel. Conference sessions cover a wide range of topics, including Using Modern Technology Tools to Engage Your Community on Land Use Decisions and Collaborative Governance — Case Studies on How to Leverage Public, Private, and Non-Profit Partnerships to Drive Better Land Use Planning.
The closing general session will showcase speaker Tony Seba, Stanford University lecturer in entrepreneurship and clean energy, Stanford University discussing the future of transportation and mega trends that he projects will disrupt public and private transportation. The next decade will see the most radical changes in transportation in a century. Exponentially improving technologies such as electric vehicles, autonomous (self-driving) vehicles, cars-as-appliance, the Internet-of-Things, electricy 2.0, and Big Data are converging at a rapid pace to cause the biggest disruption in transportation in at least a hundred years. This keynote address focuses on the megatrends that are reshaping public and private transportation and how planners can stay one step ahead in rethinking and redrawing the transportation landscape in a clean, sustainable and budget-conscious way.
