Healthy Design: Primer for Smart Growth

A Healthy Design for Madison County: Primer for Smart Growth (PDF) was completed by the Community Economic Development (CED) committee in September 2011 and is a response to local government requests for more guidance to better understand and implement the concepts of Smart Growth. 

The Primer applies specifically to Madison County and identifies current trends and establishes 4 goals, each with strategies, tools and local examples. The Primer represents a "springboard" for Madison County to move the ideas for Smart Growth forward and is intended to be an educational resource for municipalities and local officials.
