“Smart Growth” is one of those phrases that is used for cover for Agenda 21. What is happening in southwestern PA is 100 percent Agenda 21. Want to hear it first hand? Thursday morning in Pittsburgh will be your opportunity — but it will cost you $45.00 for the conference! Agenda 21 ‘buzz words’ are in bold and italicized.
“This week’s 12th annual Southwestern Pennsylvania Smart Growth Conference will focus on three issues its organizers call “make or break” for the region: transportation funding, green infrastructure and urban redevelopment financing.
Pennsylvania Transportation Secretary Barry Schoch will be a featured speaker at the event, scheduled for 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Thursday at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Downtown.
The goal of the conference, hosted by the Allegheny Conference on Community Development, the Local Government Academy and Sustainable Pittsburgh, is to bring business and government leaders together for discussions on the key issues.
“For our region to take advantage of the economic, environmental and quality-of-life transformation we’ve experienced over the last 30 years, we must have globally competitive infrastructure above and below ground,” said Dennis Yablonsky, Allegheny Conference CEO. “Working together through public-private partnerships is the way to make investment in infrastructure and in stronger communities happen.”
