Subject: [CPEO-BIF] National Award for Smart Growth Achievement
[SENT BY Tim Torma <torma.tim@epa.gov>]

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
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.
