Smart Growth / Growth Management
CAI has watched the success and
shortfalls of smart growth/growth management in communities across the
country. We have developed 10 transportation principles for smart
growth planning and work with clients to implement sensible plans.

Ho'opili, West Oahu Hawaii

The coalition includes many highly recognized national organizations advocating on behalf of historic preservation, the environment, farmland and open space preservation, neighborhood revitalization, and sustainable growth and transportation.
