FEBRUARY

 

February 11-13: New Partners for Smart Growth Conference, Portland, OR

 

The 2016 New Partners Conference is heading back west to Portland, internationally recognized as one of the most walkable, bikeable and transit-friendly “green” cities in the world. The starting point of countless model innovations in smart growth, sustainability and public engagement, the Portland region is also an environmental wonderland – even if it rains a lot! – and has one of the nation’s best urban parks and trails systems. Dubbed “Silicon Forest” for its high concentration of tech companies, Portland has maintained a diversified “desks and docks” economy with active heavy-manufacturing and port-related shipping industries. It is both a mecca for young people and one of the best places for baby boomers to retire.
