Title: Smart Growth Land Use Planning for a Community at the Rural Urban Interface Utilizing Structured Public Involvement
University of Kentucky students will partner with county leadership to explore multiple "Smart Growth" ideas to accommodate projected growth and gauge public acceptance of the ideas. Simpson County, Kentucky, is facing suburban growth pressures as are many communities across the country at the rural/urban interface. This presents opportunities and challenges to maintain community identity, build economic diversity, protect environmental resources, and improve quality of life.
