Southwestern PA Smart Growth Conference Set for May 18

“Focusing Growth for Regional Prosperity” will be the theme of the Seventh Annual Southwestern PA Smart Growth Conference in downtown Pittsburgh on May 18.

Attendees will hear progress reports and provide input to the on-going work of the three Smart Growth Community Committees—Leveling the Field for Redevelopment, Promoting Regionalism and Funding Public Transportation.

This year’s conference picks up from past conferences in serving again as a public comment session to the Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission’s process for updating the region’s Long Range Transportation and Development Plan.

The keynote speaker will be Don Chen from Smart Growth America.

The conference is presented by the University of Pittsburgh Institute of Politics, Sustainable Pittsburgh, Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission, Regional Coalition of Community Builders, Pittsburgh Partnership for Neighborhood Development and the Department of Community and Ecnomic Development with additional support by the Richard King Mellon Foundation and The Heinz Endowments.
