Smart Growth and Economic Success

Compact, diverse, and walkable development can increase property values and property tax revenues, encourage job creation, reduce housing and transportation costs, and create amenities and places that improve residents’ quality of life. EPA's Smart Growth Program invites you to participate in a webinar on Wednesday, September 18, from 3:00 - 4:00 Eastern that explores how smart growth strategies at the regional, city, and neighborhood level can maximize economic advantages while creating attractive, healthy communities that help protect the environment.

This webinar will start with a brief overview of EPA's report, Smart Growth and Economic Success: Benefits for Real Estate Developers, Investors, Businesses, and Local Governments. Speakers from Lehigh Valley, PA, Champaign, IL, and Phoenix, AZ will then discuss how smart growth is helping their communities prosper.

AICP members can earn one Certification Maintenance credit for attending this webinar.

Who Should Attend
Community leaders, state, local, and federal staff, and others interested in helping communities prosper economically and environmentally using smart growth approaches.
