BUILDING SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES
Wednesday October 15 – Friday October 17, 2014 in St. Louis, Missouri
Mark your calendars and please join the St. Louis Metro Section as they host the 2014 Missouri State APA Conference. This year’s conference will be held at the Westin Hotel located in downtown St. Louis next to Busch Stadium. The conference theme is Building Sustainable Communities. Sustainable communities are commonly defined as places that have a variety of housing and transportation choices, with destinations close to home. The goal of a sustainable community is to lower transportation costs, reduce air pollution and storm water runoff, decrease infrastructure costs, preserve historic properties and sensitive lands, save people time in traffic, be more economically resilient and meet market demand for different types of housing at different price points.
Keynote speakers and guests include Bill Anderson (President of the APA), Mark Linton (White House Council on Strong Cities, Strong Communities), John Hoal (Washington University in St. Louis), Hon. Francis Slay (Mayor of St. Louis), Mr. Matt Dalbey (Acting Deputy Director, EPA Office of Sustainable Communities) and Ms. Danielle Arigoni (Acting Deputy Director, HUD Office of Economic Resilience).
