The Coalition for Smarter Growth holds events regularly throughout the year focusing on smart growth issues and how they apply to communities in our region.
Walking Tours & Forums Series
Our signature Walking Tours & Forums Series brings together community members from all walks of life to learn about what makes a successful walkable, livable neighborhood.
Tours, typically on Saturday mornings in the spring and fall, are on-the-ground opportunities to see and feel what successful smart growth looks like. Forums occur throughout the year, and feature leading experts on hot topics like parking, zoning, affordable housing, and more. In partnership with APA, AICP credit is often available.
The Walking Tours & Forums Series is made possible by the generous support of the National Association of Realtors.
College Park: Smart growth college town?
Saturday, October 25 | 3:00-5:00 PM (special time)
When you think about walkable college towns, Berkeley and Madison are names that come to mind, not College Park. Come find out what College Park is doing to better use its assets and fix old problems to create a walkable college town and connected hub for Prince George’s County.
What does smart growth mean for watersheds?
Saturday, November 1 | 10:00-11:00 AM (one hour)
As big changes come to Route 1, how will stormwater and stream quality factor into design and development? Can smart infrastructure fit with smart growth? What can we do to heal our region’s streams and rivers?
Community Meetings & Workshops
Our community meetings and workshops, often in partnership with allied organizations, help community members and neighborhood advocates better understand what’s going on their communities and how they can affect positive change.
