MSA Honored in 5th Annual Smart Growth Awards

On June 16th, Vision Long Island will once again showcase the people, projects, and policies that represent Long Island’s brightest hopes for the future. The event is annually attended by a broad array of leaders and decision makers. Join them at this event. Talk to them about the issues your sector is grappling with. Let them that you are behind solutions that work.

This year’s Smart Growth Awards highlights the bottom-up thinking and local solutions needed to address the region’s most pressing concerns. The advances being made by our Towns and their communities are laudable. Across Long Island, more and more areas are ready to move forward with Smart Growth development and preservation practices. Many others are beginning to understand. This event is one of the best ways to raise the bar, to show Long Island not only what’s possible, but what’s being done. And the winners are...
