Conference 2005
Smart Growth on Edge

Suburban Planning and Development for the Next 20 Years
January 21, 2005, The Mission Inn, Riverside, California.

The Mission Inn’s Music Room was packed – with people and ideas – January 21 for Smart Growth on the Edge: Suburban Planning and Development for the Next 20 Years. The room proved too small for all those who wanted to attend, and the waiting list swelled to 50 people.
