Growth Management: Policies & Strategies for Limiting Urban Sprawl

January 26, 2016, 10:00am - 11:00am PT

As urban populations grow and city boundaries are pressured to expand, urban sprawl may seem inevitable. However, few cities have the means to adequately finance continued outward expansion. Growth does not pay for growth for cities constrained by limited revenue tools.

Featuring panelists with expertise in municipal finance, planning policy, urban governance, and smart growth, this PSD Webinar will explore the challenges facing cities in limiting the costs of urban sprawl. Panelists will also discuss concrete tools and proven municipal case studies in making growth pay for growth. Presentations will be followed by a Q&A session with our expert panel.
Panelists

-Terry Crowe, Manager of Policy Planning, City of Richmond, BC
- Enid Slack, Director, Institute on Municipal Finance & Governance
-Zack Taylor, Assistant Professor, Western University
-Chris Zimmerman, VP Economic Development, Smart Growth America
