Call for Entries:
National Award for Smart Growth Achievement

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is pleased to announce
that applications are now being accepted for the first National Award
for Smart Growth Achievement.  This competition is open to local or
state governments and other public sector entities that have
successfully created smart growth.

Smart growth is development that serves the economy, the community and
the environment.  Smart growth development approaches have clear
environmental benefits including improved air and water quality,
greater
preservation of critical habitat and open space, and more clean up and
re-use of brownfield sites.

Applications will be accepted in four categories: 1) Built Projects;
2)
Policies and Regulations; 3) Community Outreach and Education; and 4)
Overall Excellence in Smart Growth.

Interested parties from urban, suburban, and rural areas are
encouraged
to submit applications for smart growth activities undertaken within
the
last three years.  Successful applicants will incorporate smart growth
principles to create places that respect community culture and the
environment, foster economic development and promote a better quality
of
life for this and future generations.

Applications are due on August 30, 2002.  Five winners will be
recognized at a ceremony in Washington, DC on November 19, 2002.
