Where and how does our region grow? That is the question that Coalition for Smarter Growth tackles each day, seeking solutions to the closely-linked challenges of housing, transportation, energy, and the environment in a region that includes over four million people. The final goal? Stronger affordable housing policies, a reduction in environmentally damaging sprawl, well-planned developments, and better transit choices for all those who call this region home. Combining research and policy work, CSG reviews and endorses development and transportation projects and policies, and has formed a lively, committed network of community partners. Groundbreaking reports on pedestrian safety and affordable housing are not just published but also shared and discussed in the media and online. The Walking Tours & Forums Series also educates a range of civic leaders and community members about smart growth solutions. From climate change to changing demographics – everything points to the importance of walkable, transit-oriented communities. With Coalition for Smarter Growth we will discover, together, just how to build them.
