Thinking About Growth

Tools to Help Communities Think About Growth and Sprawl

Thinking About Growth Program
This do- it-yourself program is designed to help individuals and communities think through a variety of growth-related issues.  While we believe that the program is useful in its present form, it is still under development and should be regarded as a "beta test" version.

Environmental Dispute Resolution Links
CRInfo provides extensive links to web sites, books, articles, organizations, and other materials on more than 25 environmental dispute resolution topics. 
Today's News on Sprawl
Through CRInfo's Today's News system we provide links to today's sprawl-related news stories from dozens of  newspapers around the country.
