Aging-in-Place, Smart Growth -Community Planning- Call for Papers

Aging-in-Place and How  it Extends to the Community

The Smart Growth Network has an opportunity for real estate professionals and community members to participate in a national conversation on community planning, design/ development ideas, and perspectives. For those of us with clients who are boomers, this could also be a way to approach buying decisions in terms of positive futures.


What's your vision for the future of your community? We can join the Smart Growth Network (SGN) in this conversation about future planning . . .how neighborhoods could be planned, designed, and developed to meet the needs of current and future generations.. . and more.... by submitting a short paper on issues that communities will be facing in the next 15 years including:


How will neighborhoods and regions be planned, designed, and developed to meet the needs of current and future generations?


How can practitioners and organizations best position themselves to navigate emerging trends?


 What issues do local governments, community leaders, and advocates need to be prepared to address to ensure strong, healthy, sustainable, and livable communities?


How can governments, developers, investors, and others capitalize on increasing demand for communities that offer their residents choices in how they live, work, play, and travel?


SGN reports that a “. . .multidisciplinary review team will select between 20 and 40 papers to publish in a compendium before the 2013 New Partners for Smart Growth Conference.



as for our brokerage: We love the idea of incorporating Universal Design Elements into the Plans.
