APA Audio/Web Conference: Smart Growth in Small Towns and Rural Areas
American Planning Association
web conference, IL
Rural areas and small towns face many issues — such as declining downtowns, incompatible development in historic areas, and loss of natural areas and open space — that can be addressed effectively by smart growth and sustainable planning techniques. However, smart growth and sustainability tools are often less adaptable to those types of communities. This program will look at several rural areas and small towns that have adapted those tools to create plans and codes that facilitate smart growth. It will also describe resources that are available to assist communities.
