Outreach to Promote Transportation, Land Use and Preservation and Smart Growth Issues

This conference will build on the previous successes of the New Partner's for Smart Growth Conference series. This conference will concentrate on Building Safe, Healthy and Livable Communities. Previous conferences shared a focus on smart growth issues, and in general, targeted transportation professionals, developers, builders, local elected officials, key local government staff, planners, architects, landscape architects, urban designers, lending institutions, and bicycle and pedestrian advocates. Through our participation and sponsorship, we will facilitate the inclusion of DOT sponsored transportation initiatives on the conference agenda. The Conference will also include keynote addresses from the Secretaries of Department of Transportation (DOT), Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This conference will provide more than 1000 individuals an opportunity to hear initiatives moving forward from the Partnership for Sustainable Communities. This conference will bring together a group of leaders in the field to review the experience to date, describe best practices, and explore needed improvements and related research needs. It will also draw on other transportation modes and other sectors of the economy to identify innovative uses of planning techniques and tools to improve decision-making. This task includes a summary report of the meetings and formatting of resource materials including materials developed by presenters. Local Commission will prepare summary meeting proceedings. It is anticipated that will not only develop proceedings along with the supporting documents from the presenters but will also disseminate the materials to interested researchers and practitioners.
