BAPA is pleased to continue our co-sponsorship of the Smart Growth Partnership programs to inform and challenge planners to incorporate smart growth policies in our planning work. This program will provide an overview of the evolution of South Florida development patterns from the times of the Native Americans and early settlers through today.  We will explore how early entrepreneurs set the stage for our land development and growth patterns, how decades of changing technology and commerce initiated a pattern of sprawl and how we are using those lessons learned to transform South Florida from a set of separate urban and suburban communities to a Smart Growth region.  Overlaying smart growth principles onto our existing communities and connecting infrastructure will allow South Florida’s unique landscape to sustain and grow while preserving our environment, providing economic opportunities and creating desirable/livable communities.
