What is Smart Growth?

Smart Growth is about creating more livable communities — the kind of community Tiyata Village will be. It’s about designing places that make sense for people and the planet. With an emphasis on lifestyle, affordability, and the environment, Smart Growth is the perfect set of planning principles for how we want to live now.

Smart Growth is about living healthier in neighbourhoods that are close to shops and schools – all within walking and cycling distance. It’s a philosophy that promotes sustainability by using “greener” materials and practices to build homes that are both energy and space efficient. Smart Growth recognizes that protecting the environment ensures there will be beautiful places to live for generations to come.
