Smart Growth at 10

October 3-5, 2007
College Park, MD
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. This year marks the 10-year anniversary of Maryland’s experiment with Smart Growth. Yet the question remains: Has Smart Growth in Maryland 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 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Maryland’s landmark Smart Growth legislation. The conference is being co-hosted by Resources for the Future, a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts research on environmental, energy and natural resource issues.
