USA Today tells the story of Littleton, New Hampshire. The local government and school district of Littleton, population 5,965, combined their annual budget to hire Concordia Inc., a community planning firm. Concordia advised the residents of Littleton on "smart growth" planning practices." With the help of a 100 person committee composed of Littleton residents, Concordia drew up a plan for Littleton: redesign the town's schools, fill up every building before building another one, re-design streets and neighborhoods in order to entice people to walk more. Littleton's avant-garde practices are just beginning to be considered by larger urban centers such as Pasadena, California and Saline, Michigan.
