Some take their commutes to work for granted but access to dependable transportation is a major hurdle for many others. By locating more housing near jobs, and locating more jobs in existing transit rich communities the two can create accessible job opportunities where previously there were none.

Walkable and pedestrian friendly urban cores with hearty public transportation systems attract and retain talented workers, a valuable asset for any business and a competitive advantage for cities or regions.  Smart growth strategies encourage more foot traffic for small businesses, as well as improved productivity thanks to better transportation options and more jobs close by.

Smart growth strives for new, green and low-impact development technologies that conserve water, energy and materials while reducing storm water runoff and pollution. These technologies serve as growth engines for a rapidly changing 21st century economy that increasingly depends on a reliable pool of both skilled and unskilled labor.
