2007 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 sixth annual National
Award for Smart Growth Achievement. This competition is open to
public-sector entities that have used smart growth principles to improve
communities environmentally, socially, and economically.

Smart growth development practices support national environmental goals
by preserving open spaces and parkland and protecting critical habitat;
improving transportation choices, including walking, bicycling, and
transit, which reduces emissions from automobiles; promoting brownfield
redevelopment; and reducing impervious surfaces, which improves water

This year, applications will be accepted in five categories:
-- Overall Excellence in Smart Growth
-- Built Projects
-- Policies and Regulations
-- Equitable Development
-- Waterfront and Coastal Communities

Interested parties are encouraged to submit applications for smart
growth policies, projects, or programs that have shown significant
activity between April 3, 2002, and April 3, 2007. Successful
applicants will have used smart growth principles to create places that
respect community culture and the environment, foster economic
development, and enhance quality of life and public health.

Applications are due on April 3, 2007. Up to five winners will be
recognized at a ceremony in Washington, DC, in November 2007.
