10th Annual New Partners for Smart Growth

02/03/2021 – 02/05/2021

Charlotte, NC, USA

Building Safe, Healthy, and Livable Communities

The 2011 New Partners Conference will head east to Charlotte, NC. More than a NASCAR mecca and a financial epicenter, this burgeoning hub of the Southeast has the excitement of a cosmopolitan city, yet maintains the friendliness of a small town with Southern charm.

Today, we are faced with environmental, social and economic challenges that will define our generation, shape our future, and test our resilience as neighborhoods, cities and a nation. Join leaders from across the U.S. as we tackle these challenges head-on and demonstrate smart growth solutions that will reduce our dependence on foreign oil, create a green economy, assure a healthy population, foster more equitable development, and expand transportation and housing options for all Americans.

In these tough economic times when communities everywhere are struggling for fiscal survival, this timely conference will identify innovative ways to finance smart growth, explore creative techniques for reducing infrastructure and service costs, and provide concrete ideas for employing smart growth as a tool for economic vitality.
