Smart Growth America’s Local Leaders Council is a nonpartisan group of officials who share a passion for building great towns, cities, and communities. Marshall County now has a representative to sit on this council.
Marshall County Commissioner Kevin Overmyer will serve on the Local Leaders Council of Smart Growth America. Some of the important work the council will be working on included building walkable, equitable, economically strong neighborhoods across the country.
Representing diverse communities of all sizes from across the United States, members of Smart Growth America’s Local Leaders Council are using smart growth strategies to help their hometowns compete and grow in today’s economy, generate better return on taxpayer investment, provide transportation and housing choices for their residents, and create vibrant places where people want to live, work, and play.
The Local Leaders Council shares and promotes effective policies and programs with fellow elected officials across the country. The Council supports those who are implementing smart growth strategies and advises Smart Growth America about how state and federal decisions affect local communities.
