The smart growth strategies that have driven downtown and core urban revitalization nationwide have not been as effective in the surrounding poorer urban communities. In some situations, compact development has even led to increased environmental and health impacts on lower income urban neighborhoods. This session will draw examples from the HUD-funded Choice Neighborhood and other programs to emphasize the need to develop realistic smart growth strategies that can be successfully implemented in depressed urban neighborhoods.
