SECTION 6-0105
State smart growth public infrastructure policy
Environmental Conservation (ENV) CHAPTER 43-B, ARTICLE 6
§ 6-0105. State smart growth public infrastructure policy.

It is the purpose of this article to augment the state's environmental
policy by declaring a fiscally prudent state policy of maximizing the
social, economic and environmental benefits from public infrastructure
development through minimizing unnecessary costs of sprawl development
including environmental degradation, disinvestment in urban and suburban
communities and loss of open space induced by sprawl facilitated by the
funding or development of new or expanded transportation, sewer and
waste water treatment, water, education, housing and other publicly
supported infrastructure inconsistent with smart growth public
infrastructure criteria.
