Smart Growth in the Midwest: An Overview of Policies and Practice

August 31 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EDT

Is “Smart Growth” a relevant term in the Midwest? How has the concept influenced planning and development in the America’s heartland, and how do current practices compare to notions of smart growth as established by the American Planning Association and the experience of planners in other parts of the country? This webinar will explore these questions through the lens of consultant planners working in rural and urban communities across Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

In this Smart Growth Network webinar, Jason Valerius, chair of the Planning Community of Practice at MSA Professional Services in Madison, Wis., and co-author of Becoming an Urban Planner: A Guide to Careers in Planning and Urban Design, and his colleagues will describe what they see in their work across the Midwest and reflect on the impact of state-led funding and legislation to encourage “smart” local planning. Eligible for 1.5 AICP CM Credits.
