The Local Government Commission (LGC) is already working toward planning the 13th Annual New Partners for Smart Growth: Building Safe, Healthy, Equitable and Prosperous Communities Conference, to be held February 13-15, 2014 in Denver, CO. The Michigan Suburbs Alliance will be a cosponsor of this event, and we know it will be of interest to city staff members and local advocates alike.
The conference will build on the first twelve highly successful conferences in this series, which collectively brought together an audience of nearly 14,000 people from across the U.S. and several other countries. This conference is unique in that it focuses on a multi-disciplinary approach to implementing smart growth principles to help build safer, healthier, more economically viable, transit-oriented and pedestrian-friendly communities across the nation.
We will continue to update this event listing with more details and a link to the full conference website when it goes live. You can also connect with the conference on Facebook and Twitter @newparntersconf to get real-time conference news!
