Get in on the sustainable communities discussion before the New Partners for Smart Growth Conference starts!

Local Government Commission

More sustainable communities can become a reality, but that can’t happen without your help.

That’s why the LGC and the EPA invite you to join, a new engagement website created by MindMixer, and powered by the ideas of engaged people like you. Your ideas and the ideas of your neighbors will guide the goals of the annual New Partners for Smart Growth Conference series and provide a forum for communities to share their success stories of overcoming challenges, implementing smart growth practices and creating more sustainable, healthy, equitable, and prosperous communities, now and into the future.

Join the discussion on topics like:
• What is your vision of sustainability in your community?
• How have you overcome obstacles in your community in order to create and maintain parks, trails and open spaces?
• What creative solutions demonstrate how people can work together across the political spectrum to successfully implement smart growth?
• And much, much more!

It’s easy to get in on the conversation. Enter the online forum at any time, anywhere. Contribute new ideas. Second or expand on ideas you like. Vote in an instant poll. Earn rewards for participation. LGC and EPA leaders will be tuned in to what you and your colleagues are saying and keeping track of what you want to see, hear and know more about at the next conference and beyond.

Continue to be part of the conversation at the 12th Annual New Partners for Smart Growth Conference, to be held February 7-9, 2013 in Kansas City, MO. This no-to-be-missed event will include nearly 100 sessions that will be addressing some of the key issues we are conversing about through this online platform.
