App Description

The official 2016 New Partners for Smart Growth Conference app is now available!

The 15th Annual New Partners for Smart Growth Conference is heading back to the West Coast – Portland, OR – after stops in America’s Heartland, the Rockies and the Chesapeake Bay over the past three years.

The nation’s largest smart growth and sustainability event, the theme for New Partners 2016 is “Practical Tools and Innovative Strategies for Creating Great Communities,” underscoring this year’s stronger emphasis on implementation. The program will feature tools, strategies, focused training and new technologies that will help communities NOW.

Our new mobile app will help you connect with a national audience of local elected officials and city/county staff; state and federal agency leaders; professionals in planning, transportation, public health, landscape architecture, architecture, parks and recreation, housing, public works, crime prevention and the arts; realtors, developers, builders and bankers; advocates for equity and environmental justice, youth, older adults, and walking and biking; labor representatives; school leaders and staff; and environmentalists.

We look forward to seeing you there!
