Written by:





On June 17, 2013, we invite you to participate in a virtual discussion with senior U.S. officials to commemorate the fourth year anniversary of the Partnership for Sustainable Communities in a 45-minute Twitter town hall meeting.

The Partnership, a collaboration of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), helps communities build stronger regional economies, improve their housing and transportation options, and protect the environment.  It has provided more than $4 billion in funding and technical assistance for projects in all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Please join EPA Acting Administrator Bob Perciasepe, HUD Deputy Secretary Maurice Jones, and DOT Deputy Secretary John Porcari for a conversation at the Sustainable Communities Twitter Town Hall Meeting on Monday, June 17, at 1:30 pm (ET).

During the town hall, officials will respond to your questions and comments on the following topics:

  • Identify the most helpful actions that the Partnership for Sustainable Communities has taken for local communities, and what more can be done;
  • Your ideas for HUD, DOT, and EPA as they seek to improve the work of the Partnership in 2013.
  • The positive economic, environmental and community impacts that can result by better connecting work, housing, and transportation;
  • How sustainability and planning create public/private partnerships that increase the economic competitiveness of urban and rural regions; and

Please send your questions and comments from now through Monday, June 17th at 12 pm (ET).

Watch the live webstream here.  Twitter users may ask questions in advance and during the Town Hall using the hashtag #sustainableqs.
