Coalition for Smarter Growth
The Coalition for Smarter Growth, an advocate of community oriented development since 1997, is the leading organization addressing where and how the Washington D.C. region grows. Our mission is to ensure that transportation and development decisions are made with genuine community participation and allow the region to accommodate growth while revitalizing communities, providing more housing and travel choices, and conserving our natural and historic areas. The Coalition was founded as and remains the central coordinating agent and voice of smart growth in Metropolitan Washington. Our goals include: focusing investment in towns and around transit stations; increasing transportation and housing choices; and ensuring vibrant neighborhood open space, agricultural lands and natural areas.
