Join Us for the Summit for Smart Growth and Sustainable Communities 12/4


Now is the time.

Now is the time to sign up to reserve your spot at the Summit for Smart Growth and Sustainable Communities on Dec. 4th at the Renaissance Hotel in Allentown. We have quite an exciting day lined up. You’ll be hearing more about this, but just for starters, you can hear Judy Wicks of the White Dog Cafe and BALLE (the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies) and Chuck Marohn of Strong Towns.

Chuck Marohn of Strong Towns will discuss the future fiscal implications of funding suburban infrastructure

Both are fabulous speakers and authors with national followings. Judy will talk about local economies, especially local food economies and Chuck, from a fiscally conservative perspective, will be speaking about how we cannot afford to maintain the infrastructure of conventional suburban development.
The work done here at RenewLV focuses on promoting smart growth and efficient governance in the region. We collaborate with the community partners, share information, promote different ideas to support revitalizing our core communities, preserving open space, and creating an economically and environmentally sustainable foundation for our region’s future growth.

The last two years, toward these ends, we we held Summits for Smart Growth — dynamic events that brought regional leaders and citizens together to focus on smart growth in the Lehigh Valley.
Last year we attracted over 200 people from around the region to participate in important regional discussions. It was great!

This year, we’re doing it again. We’ve structured the Summit this year to focus on moving from ideas to action.
We have local, regional and TWO national experts lined up to discuss and address the serious questions that will define our region’s future.

Now is the time. Please join us for the 3rd Annual Summit for Smart Growth on December 4th at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Allentown. In addition to hearing from experts, you will have an opportunity after lunch to share your ideas as we craft strategies for moving forward. The cost is $75, but two meals, breakfast and lunch, are included.

Looking forward to seeing you at the Summit!
