The 2013 Louisiana Smart Growth Summit was a great success with almost 900 speakers, elected officials, developers, planners, design practitioners, students and community members participating in 30+ sessions during this conference. Over 32 parishes were represented, and we welcomed guests from California, Colorado, Texas, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, New York, Washington, DC, and even Guadalajara. Though there is still a lot of work to be done, each year we feature more case studies from right here in Louisiana—evidence that these efforts are moving our communities forward.
Over the next few weeks, CPEX will be posting session videos and slide presentations from the Summit and will send out an update once these are available. In the meantime, take a sneak peek at our wrap-up video below.
If you were able to join us at the Summit, please take a few minutes to fill out our quick survey and offer your feedback on the event to help us improve it for next year. A copy of the event schedule can be found here for your reference.
If you enjoyed the Smart Growth Summit, please consider becoming a member of CPEX and adding your voice to ours. We depend on strong member support to continue planning for a more resilient, livable Louisiana.
Finally, we would like to thank our generous sponsors, planning committee members, and volunteers for making such a meaningful event possible!
