Call for Entries, EPA's 2005 National Award for Smart Growth Achievement

United States Environmental Protection Agency


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the fourth annual National Award for Smart Growth Achievement. This competition is open to local or state governments and other public sector entities that have used the principles of smart growth to create better places.

Smart growth development serves the economy, the community, and the environment. Smart growth approaches to development create clear environmental benefits, including improved air and water quality, preservation of critical habitat and open space, and more cleanup and re-use of brownfield sites.

This year, applications will be accepted in five categories:
- Built Projects
- Policies and Regulations
- Small Communities
- Military Base Redevelopment
- Overall Excellence in Smart Growth

Interested parties are encouraged to submit applications for smart growth activities that have shown significant activity between May 19, 2000, and May 18, 2005. Successful applicants will have incorporated the principles of smart growth to create places that respect community culture and the environment, foster economic development, and enhance quality of life and public health.

Applications are due on May 18, 2005. Up to five winners will be recognized at a ceremony in Washington, DC, in November 2005.
