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 reinvestment.

What We Do:

  • 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.
  • Provide direct assistance to local groups that are working to create great places that benefit everyone.

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