GLRPPR Sector Resource: Smart Growth and Economic Success

Title:
Smart Growth and Economic Success

Abstract:
EPA has developed a series of reports exploring the economic advantages of smart growth for businesses, real estate developers, investors, and local governments. Smart growth development is compact and walkable and provides a diverse range of choices in land uses, building types, transportation, homes, workplace locations, and stores. Businesses, real estate developers, investors, and local governments that understand how smart growth can affect them financially will be better prepared to make development decisions--decisions that are likely to benefit the environment as well.
