• Examples of how other communities are encouraging healthy building and the resulting community and economic health benefits.
• New models of effective partnerships between developers, government agencies, and other stakeholders.
• The latest thinking on how to create places where people want to live, work and play – information you can use to better position yourself in the marketplace.
