May 7-8, 2008
If you are interested in the intersection of economic development, labor, subsidies, big-box retail, and smartgrowth, this is an event for you. Much of the conference will focus on sprawl, smartgrowth, mass transit, transit-oriented development, Wal-Mart and curbing big-box retail.
It will also feature an analysis of how sprawl harms union members (and how unions are joining smartgrowth coalitions), and how economic development subsidies fuel sprawl (and how some states are starting to reform subsidies to support smart growth).
