What Does Smart Growth Mean?

As employees of Ohio's smart growth organization, all of us at Greater Ohio Policy Center get asked from time to time what does “smart growth” mean.  Our sister organization in New York, Empire State Future, answered the question for us in a recent blog entry and took it a step further by sharing why smart growth was so important to all Ohioans, whether they live in a rural setting or an urban one (okay he was actually talking about New Yorkers, but we think you get the idea).  Check it out and let us know if they hit the mark.
