About Smart Growth America

If you have ever walked down a beautiful, vibrant main street, taken public transportation to work, or made a quick trip to the grocery store and back, you’ve experienced what a smart growth approach to urban development can do. Smart Growth America is a national advocacy non-profit dedicated to helping communities across the country create great, walkable neighborhoods. A smart growth approach supports thriving businesses and jobs, provides more options for how people get around, and makes it more affordable to live near work, the grocery store and other important living essentials. The organization uses Salsa’s platform to bring that worthwhile mission to supporters across the country.

The Challenge

Promote Issues | Educate Supporters

Public policy shapes development in a number of ways. State and federal legislators make decisions about things like transportation or infrastructure spending, and development tax incentives and loan programs. Local leaders make choices about things like zoning codes, street design, and budgets for downtown. At each of these decision points, leaders have an opportunity to grow in ways that support long-term economic prosperity or hurt it.
