Smart Growth Readiness Assessment Tool
This online tool provides educational material on the ten tenets of Smart Growth and permits communities to assess the degree to which their Master Plan, Zoning Ordinance, other regulations, and community leaders are ready to foster smart community growth.

Land Use Glossary
Citizen Planner has put together a glossary of terms related to land use and planning and zoning. This glossary complements the online training program to make it easier to understand terms that may be unfamiliar to most people. This is an excellent tool to help build one's land use vocabulary and to achieve a better understanding of planning and zoning.
