Smart Growth Training

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description The Connecticut DEP and Hartford neighborhood groups co-sponsored a series entitled "Smart Growth Training for Hartford Neighborhoods." Part 1 was held in March 2003. Jim Gibbons, a land-use expert, talked about sprawl and smarter growth in Connecticut and illustrated how smart growth principles promote a more livable urban community while protecting Connecticut's open space. The program opened with a quiz show, "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?"

The second program in the series, held in April 2003, featured a role-play in which the stakeholders in a development dispute presented their case in a mediation session and the audience determined the outcome of the mediation. Using a "Smart Growth Scorecard" participants played the jury to determine the best way to develop the proposed site. The workshop also included training on reading site plans, designing better parking, and changing local zoning.
