SmartCoast works to build a healthy coastal region by empowering and inspiring local citizens through education, research, and dialogue.
SmartCoast has put on conferences on Smart Growth and Mixed Use Development. Since the rapid pace of development is going to increase along the Gulf Coast, it only makes sense to make sure that the buildings built to accommodate that growth are sustainably built. Green Building is a building practice that creates healthier living and working spaces while conserving and enhancing the environment.
SmartCoast also has a Walkable Communities Study Group that is working to encourage more pedestrian friendly development and support for walkable communities.
