About

The Massachusetts Smart Growth Alliance (MSGA) promotes healthy and diverse communities, protects critical environmental resources and working landscapes, advocates for housing and transportation choices, and supports equitable community development and urban reinvestment.

We work to achieve this mission by:

  • advancing legislation and promoting a favorable regulatory environment,
  • advocating for state planning, funding and construction decisions in line with the state’s sustainable development principles, and
  • identifying best practices and helping Massachusetts communities tackle the smart growth challenges they face.

We support  a statewide network of individuals, community-based organizations, nonprofit institutions, municipalities, and businesses with information resources, advocacy tools, and peer-learning opportunities.
