About Smart Growth (Boston)

The healthier a community, the better the environment for REALTORS®. Keeping a community attractive, livable, and functioning well is a complex task. Who better to be stewards of their community than REALTORS®! Whether your community is grappling with transportation and land use issues, crowded schools, or open space, or working to bring vacant properties back to productive use, NAR’s Smart Growth program has resources to help you and your association plant seeds that will pay dividends for years to come

Note:  The images are artists' renderings that show how Smart Growth principles can transform underused areas into vibrant, healthy communities.  The images of the Lansing, Michigan, waterfront were created by Urban Advantage to illustrate how a community might develop around a decommissioned and re-purposed power plant. The revitalized area could include housing, commercial development, and, eventually, a busy downtown area where people would venture both during the day and after dark.
