at Earth Day Mobile Bay
Considering the fast pace of coastal regional growth, Smart Coast has initiated a strategic plan that envisions building a healthy coastal region by empowering and inspiring local citizens through education, research and balanced dialogue. Smart Coast will provide educational opportunities for citizens and decision makers, advocate legislative change, and provide resources and tools to aid in creating a sustainable regional plan.
Through civic engagement, Smart Coast will encourage the use of the Smart Growth Principles to plan for the future development along the coastal regions. Some of these would be mixed use, walkable communities, a range of housing, alternative transportation choices, a strong sense of place, and preservation of open spaces/farmland. Smart Coast will also encourage resource efficient, sustainable building design and practices to be used for new and renovated commercial, residential and government buildings.
