ULI Program Eases Way For Smart Growth Projects

The Urban Land Institute is going nationwide with a program that should make it easier for smarth growth and new urban projects to win the governmental approvals thay need.

"Within the past three years, ULI has taken the lead in forming two regional “smart growth alliances” that judge projects on whether they embody smart-growth principles. Each alliance — the Washington Smart Growth Alliance, in the region centered on the nation’s capital, and the Delaware Valley Smart Growth Alliance, covering southeast Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, and northern Delaware — has assembled an independent jury that reviews proposed projects and determines whether they adhere to smart growth ideals."
