Smart Growth, Dumb Growth, and Not-Quite-So-Dumb Growth

Environmental Protection Agency

W. Paul Farmer, AICP, is Executive Director of the American Planning Association. He will discuss the popularity of smart growth as an approach for responding to run
away patterns of growth of the past half century. His talk will present perspectives
regarding the level of change required locally, regionally, and nationally to ensure
increased community livability and economic competitiveness for the nation's cities
and metropolitan regions. He will consider whether smart growth can be achieved by
making modest changes to current planning systems or if it will require a fundamental
shift in public policy.
