CRC's Efforts in Promoting Smart Growth and Livable Communities



The trust and respect CRC has built among local government attorneys enables CRC to play a unique role in encouraging efforts by local governments to protect their environment and map out a better future for their communities. Representative of these CRC's efforts in this area:

  • CRC has advised the Board of Supervisors, Planning Commission and county attorney for Loudoun County , Virginia in their high-profile effort to devise a plan to slow and channel the counties’ explosive development.  To see the remarks CRC's Tim Dowling delivered to a recent public meeting, click here.
  • CRC recently conducted a property rights workshop for supervisors, planning commissioners and attorneys for Cobb County, Georgia.  To view CRC's PowerPoint program, click here.           
  • CRC helped conduct a two-day seminar for local officials in coastal South Carolina to assure them that they have ample legal authority to manage growth, combat sprawl, and prevent unsafe development on their beaches.  To see CRC's paper for this seminar, click here.
