Conference registration is now open for the 9th Annual New Partners for Smart Growth Conference, which will be held on February 4-6, 2010 in Seattle, Washington. The conference brochure is attached.
The multi-disciplinary program will feature cutting-edge policies and programs, projects, as well as strategies and implementation tools that address the challenges of implementing smart growth development. Session topics include climate change, equitable development, environmental justice, public health, transportation, infrastructure, green jobs and the economy, rural town planning, financing smart growth development, open space preservation, retrofitting suburbs, affordable housing, schools, critical water issues, green building, and much, much more. Several sessions will be approved for AICP continuing education credits.
The conference agenda also includes special workshops, including a one-day workshop on February 3, 2010 entitled “Working Together for Equitable Development: Voices and Lessons from Environmental Justice and Smart Growth.”
