Smart Growth America
Smart Growth America is a coalition of advocacy organizations that have a stake in how metropolitan expansion affects the environment, quality of life and economic sustainability in urban areas. Partners include national, state and local groups, working on behalf of the environment, historic preservation, social equity, land conservation, neighborhood redevelopment, farmland protection, and labor. Member groups include the statewide "1000 Friends" organizations such as 1000 Friends of Oregon, Washington's, GrowSmartMaine, New Jersey Future, Idaho Smart Growth, and the San Francisco Bay Area's Greenbelt Alliance. Vision Neighborhoods shape our lives. They are where we wake up each morning and go to work each day, where our children learn and grow, and where we spend time with our friends and family. Where we live can influence our health, our economic potential, and our children’s futures. Everyone in America—no matter his or her age, ability, income, or race—deserves the option to live somewhere affordable, convenient, beautiful, and safe. And America’s towns and cities deserve investment, stewardship, and supportive, thriving communities. A smart growth approach to development is about creating the places that make this possible. Smart growth means reinvesting in America’s downtowns and Main Streets, the economic engines of big cities and small towns alike. Smart growth means creating homes for families of all income levels alongside one another. Smart growth means diversifying our transportation system so Americans have a choice in how they get around. Smart growth means building streets that are safe for people walking, bicycling or using a wheelchair, as well as driving. Smart growth means reimagining the places we have already built, and protecting our open green spaces for generations to come. Above all, smart growth is about helping every town and city become a more economically prosperous, socially equitable, and environmentally sustainable place to live. This approach looks different for every community, but can help neighborhoods of any kind flourish, make towns and cities competitive in a 21st century economy, and improve lives by improving neighborhoods. (Re)Building Downtown Successful economic development is increasingly about creating great, walkable, and connected places. Smart Growth America’s (Re)Building Downtown technical assistance helps your community get ready for walkable development quickly and efficiently. Smart Growth America helps local public officials identify the necessary strategies, including improving regulations for land use, establishing clear public investment practices, and reforming administrative processes. It's experts also work with you to develop data-driven policy arguments to demonstrate the benefits of walkable downtown development. Downtown revitalization is about more than making physical improvements; it’s about bringing people together. Vibrant downtowns, main streets, and city centers give people reasons to return to your neighborhood over and over again. Read more about (Re)Building Downtown here.
