CPEX's Smart Growth Summit is coming up on August 27th-29th. This will be the seventh year for the summit and it has really become the premier event for best practices in planning and community development in Louisiana.
It takes place at the Manship Theatre at the Shaw Center for the Arts in downtown Baton Rouge and will cover a broad spectrum of topics including parks and greenways, bike Infrastructure, art for revitalization, financing, water management, neighborhood redevelopment, transit and housing investments, coastal communities, communications, green building, planning in rural communities and economic development.
Speakers will include Mitchell J. Silver, Chief Planning and Economic Development Officer for the City of Raleigh, urban designer Victor Dover, Robert Grow, pioneer in regional visioning, and Greg LeRoy, director of Good Jobs First. And that's just scratching the surface.
The summit will offer continuing education credits for attorneys as well as self-reporting credits for planners, architects, landscape architects, engineers, and realtors, in case you or anyone you know could benefit from that.
There is plenty of information available on the schedule, speakers, accommodations, and registration on the website at http://summit.cpex.org.
Online registration is now open, so please sign up and spread the word!
