An Energy Newsletter for Local Governments
Online registration is now open for the Third Annual New Partners for Smart Growth: Building Safe, Healthy and Livable Communities conference. This event will be held January 22-24, 2004 at the Hilton Portland and Executive Tower in Portland, Oregon.
You can view the most up-to-date information and register for the conference through the conference web site (http://www.outreach.psu.edu/C&I/SmartGrowth/).
The 2004 national conference will build on the tremendous success of both the first and second annual New Partners for Smart Growth conferences, held in 2002 in San Diego and 2003 in New Orleans. A lot of progress has been made in the last year, and this conference will provide the venue to showcase it! The program will feature cutting-edge smart growth issues, the latest research, implementation tools and strategies, successful case studies, new partners, new projects, and new policies.
The web site contains details about the conference program, optional tours, pre-conference sessions, hotel rates and reservation information, as well as the registration form. Please be sure to note the new special group rates and Local Government Commission member rates available this year, as well as other special features outlined on the web site.
We expect the hotel WILL SELL OUT, so if you are considering attending the conference, we encourage you to make your reservations as soon as possible, by calling 1-800-HILTONS and asking for the group rate, NewPartnersConf/LGC.
We hope to see you in Portland early next year to catch up on what's new in smart growth!
