An additional resource that you might find useful is the NAR Growth Management Fact Book. It provides REALTORS with an update of factual information and analyses concerning modern growth management (aka “Smart Growth”) initiatives and techniques. The publication of the Fact Book reflects NAR’s belief that REALTORS must be able to engage with citizens, legislators and government officials effectively on regulatory issues of importance to the real estate industry. The Fact Book is designed to keep REALTORS well informed and help them develop well-reasoned policy positions on growth management-related issues at the national and local levels.
The areas covered include:
- Location, density and rate of growth
- Public facilities and infrastructure
- Protection of natural resources and environment
- Preservation of community character
- Affordable housing
