MFA Supporting Smart Growth Policies Nationwide

Author: James J. Maul, RG, LHG Published: November 30, 2011

MFA has been selected as part of a team of consultants, including Redevelopment Economics, to support Smart Growth America in hosting workshops with governors and high-level state officials to develop policies to support brownfield redevelopment, urban revitalization, and sustainable communities. MFA previously teamed with Redevelopment Economics to develop brownfield policy improvements in Washington State.

The Governors’ Institute for Community Design provides workshops tailored to the unique priorities and needs of their states. Each workshop brings together one governor and his or her cabinet and staff to work with nationally renowned experts and practitioners on specific issues identified by the governor prior to the workshop. The Governors’ Institute workshops are designed to:

  • Provide state leaders with practical, action-oriented strategies to create vibrant, economically competitive communities;
  • Highlight the connections between economic development, transportation, land use, housing, energy, and the environment;
  • Bring together a broad range of decision makers and create the basis for coordinated action among state agencies; and
  • Encourage increased cooperation between state and local governments.
