Sefko Presents at TML
Dan Sefko, Freese and Nichols' Urban Planning Group Manager, presented at the annual TML conference in Houston on Oct. 13 along with Todd Gottel, Mayor of Rowlett; Douglas Athas, City Council member, Garland; and John Lettelleir, Director of Development Services, Frisco. Dan spoke about improving planning process and responses to concerns about the United Nations' issuance of Agenda 21 sustainability policies.
The emphasis of the presentation centered around how cities should accurately clarify any misinformation about Agenda 21 and sustainability efforts, especially early in the planning process. The presentation also stressed the importance of defining "sustainability," giving factual responses to inquiries and striving for development excellence.
