Thanks to your advocacy, we’re celebrating more wins for smart growth in our region! Embrace August’s opportunities to make a difference — such as becoming a Smart Growth Watchdog! — to drive even more positive change. And don’t miss our Popsicles in the Park meet-up with partners WABA and CCAN!
We are excited to announce that this year’s Frederick and Diana Prince Livable Communities awardee is City of Alexandria Mayor Justin Wilson! We will also be honoring our Sanders-Henn Community Hero awardees, smart growth community advocates Kyle Reeder and Bernard Holloway from Prince George’s County, Tina Slater from Montgomery County, Kim Hosen from Prince William County, and Michelle Krocker from Northern Virginia.
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day the urbanist way with Jeff Speck, CSG, and metrobar! Jeff is traveling to DC for a special reading from his recently released 10th Anniversary edition of Walkable City. Signed copies of Jeff’s book will also be available for purchase. Tickets for this special event ($25) include one drink.
We really need you! By December 31, we need to raise $150,000 to continue our work. There is good news: our biggest donors have offered over $70,000 in matching gifts so any amount you give will go twice as far! Please contribute to CSG today so that we can continue to fight for a more inclusive, sustainable region.
The countdown has officially begun for our 25th Anniversary celebration and fundraiser, and you’re invited! Join us on Thursday, May 12 from 6-8pm at the Capitol View at 400 – an open air rooftop with a great view of the iconic Union Station. Spend the evening mingling with smart growth advocates and enjoying the gorgeous view. We’ll also have wine, beer, and delicious hors d’oeuvres.
