12:30pm - 1:30pm
Dr. Gerrit Knaap, Urban Studies and Planning professor and director of The University of Maryland's National Center for Smart Growth Research and Education, will give a lecture on "Maryland's Smart Growth Experience: Assessing the Impact."
During his lecture Dr. Knaap will describe the challenge of making Maryland's innovative smart growth policy a state-wide reality. Dr. Knaap will also offer insights into why the state's Priority Funding Areas, aimed to concentrate state investment in existing neighborhoods, did not deliver the results that state planners and smart growth advocates had hoped for. Finally he will describe how other states or localities can learn from the Maryland experience and where Maryland goes from here to realize the promise of statewide smart growth.
The following professional credits are offered for this lecture: 1.0 LU (AIA) / 1.0 CM (AICP)
FREE. Pre-Registration required. Walk in registration based on availability.
The Smart Growth Lecture Series is presented in association with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Smart Growth Network.
