Smart Growth @ 10 Conference

In 1997, Maryland burst into the national spotlight with the passage of its Smart Growth and Neighborhood Conservation initiative. The initiative gained broad national recognition and praise. 2007 marks the 10-year anniversary of Maryland's experiment with Smart Growth. Yet the question remains: Has Smart Growth changed the development pattern in Maryland?

To address these and other related questions, the National Center for Smart Growth Research and Education is organizing a three-day conference in early October 2007 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Maryland's landmark Smart Growth legislation. The conference is being co-hosted by Resources for the Future.
