She showed a strong grasp of many of the issues and concepts associated with Equitable Development- Excellent Job!

I hope you will continue to move in the right direction and begin to diversify the smart growth network as well, are there any plans to do this???

I enjoyed the Mariposa video it contained some valuable information. One suggestion would be to increase the community voices in the smart growth award videos to allow other communities to hear about how they played a role and what value they feel was brought to their communities. Maybe follow a similar format to the environmental justice videos I viewed on this blog.

In looking at these issues, it seems like planning is a big part of the impacts that are happening in communities.
