NADO Staff Address Sustainable Communities Initiative Working Group

Posted on: December 16th, 2011 by Kathy Nothstine

On Wednesday, December 7, NADO Associate Directors Carrie Kissel and Kathy Nothstine provided an update on NADO Research Foundation work to the Rural Implementation Group.  This working group was formed to implement the principles of the Sustainable Communities Initiative (SCI) in rural areas and comprises leadership and staff from the three agencies that are members of the SCI—the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Departments of Housing and Urban Development and Transportation—as well as the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Kissel and Nothstine were invited to participate in the meeting to present information on two of the NADO Research Foundation’s initiatives that relate to the agencies’ Sustainable Communities work.  These programs include the recently released reports Regional Approaches to Sustainable Development (PDF) and Transportation Project Prioritization and Performance-based Planning Efforts in Rural and Small Metropolitan Regions (PDF), both funded through cooperative agreements with the Federal Highway Administration.  View the presentation here.
