Interactive Case Study Map
*The case studies provided in this toolkit illustrate key concepts for individual smart growth / smart energy modules.  Where possible, three distinct types of case studies were identified: a rural, a suburban, and an urban setting.  For a few of the modules, this distinction was not applicable and the three case studies were chosen based on their ability to illustrate key concepts.  To the extent possible, Massachusetts case studies were utilized.  The interactive case study map, accessible at the home page, gives the user a geographic reference point for each case study.
