In May of 1999, the Surdna Foundation’s staff and its Board Environment Committee began to explore a special grant-making focus on smart growth and development of livable communities. The Surdna Foundation team decided that the Foundation should help to foster a range of good examples in different geographic and organizational contexts. This section of a report that offers the story of the Surdna Foundation’s Initiative on Smart Growth examines the assumptions, theory of change, expected outcomes, and implementation of the Initiative.
