From the Vision to The Ground—Making Smart Growth Pencil Out

Throughout this year’s conference, we heard from dynamic speakers and leading experts who discussed innovative solutions for increasing self-reliance and implementing smart growth strategies in a time of dwindling state and federal support.

Growing environmental, economic, health and equity concerns underline the critical need to go from planning and visioning to getting real projects in the ground. Communities across California are responding to this need for action and developing innovative programs.
