12th Annual New Partners for Smart Growth (CM | TBD)
February 7, 2013 - February 9, 2013
Building Safe, Healthy, Equitable and Prosperous Communities
This year, the New Partners Conference makes its way to America’s heartland – Kansas City, MO. Long acclaimed for its legendary jazz, blues and barbecue, Kansas City is now striving to implement a vision of smart growth and sustainability that promotes economic vitality, environmental quality and social equity.
The conference’s trip to the Midwest underscores an expansive diversity ripe for innovative smart-growth strategies and opportunities – for industrial big cities, suburban neighborhoods, small towns and rural agriculture, stretching across the Great Plains to the Great Lakes to Appalachia.
Home to industrial giants, thriving small businesses and a rich history of agricultural life, the core of the American vision is still here in these Midwest communities, challenging us to take smart growth to new places.
