Smart growth is vital for healthy communities
How we develop our communities is is an issue for all of us.
Poorly planned development is just as much of a problem for small rural towns that are losing forest and crop land as it is for large metropolitan areas where pollution, urban decay, and sprawl are decreasing the quality of life.
In contrast, compact, pedestrian-friendly communities with open-spaces and other appealing uses of land decreases our reliance on cars and increases our access to goods and services.

Educate yourself, your neighbors, and your public officials about the value of mix-use communities.
