The sold-out conference in Irving, Texas featured a series of presentations organized by the North Central Texas (NCT) Section and the Midwest Section of the Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association. Topics included planning issues like community planning, urban design and economic development.

The session led by Rick and Brian discussed placemaking and community building, along with planning strategies and design approaches. The duo also shared some best practices and urban design examples used to create these environments.
