A Midwest conference is helping communities to implement practices that will insure a sustainable future for generations to come. The midwest is joining commununities across America in developing initiatives for more sustainable communities.
Communities throughout the Midwest are looking at ways to plan for growth that will minimize impact while improving the quality of life.
Some of these efforts include promoting walkable, mixed-use communities; minimizing urban sprawl thereby reducing the need for costly infrastructure improvements; and supporting planning policies to ensure the region has enough farmland, open space and clean water to meet current and future demands.
On June 30th 2010, Cliffbreakers Conference Center in Rockford IL will host a sustainability conference for communities. The one-day conference will address best practices for sustainable communities.
More specifically, the conference will address the issues of applying sustainable principles to transportation and infrastructure and implementing best planning practices from watershed protection to conservation design. Three tracks will be held focusing on Transportation, Green Infrastructure and Conservation Practices.
