Steering Committee

The LOCUS Steering Committee guides strategic decision-making for LOCUS. This group of leading smart growth-oriented developers are responsible for prominent mixed-use, mixed-income, transit-oriented developments across the U.S. Guided by LOCUS’ vision for equitable, walkable communities, the Steering Committee informs LOCUS’ advocacy platform and is an expert advisory group to Smart Growth America.

Steering Committee members provide strategic input to LOCUS on its advocacy platform and influence in the federal policy space. They also provide technical input on proposed and existing legislation while participating in outreach to federal, state, and local policymakers. Membership is by nomination or application. Individuals interested in a Steering Committee membership are welcome to self-nominate themselves on account of their leadership in smart growth and alignment with SGA’s north star. Please reach out to Jared Klukas at [email protected] for more information.
