Green Cities™ Huntsville Planning Summit is a vision planning session to determine the imperatives to creating an educational event that will help lay the path of sustainable development for jobs, housing, community and business growth over the next 5 years. 

The Huntsville Planning Summit is the first phase, where over the course of one day, the top leaders in business, government, community and education will explore and determine the topics that address the challenges and opportunities facing the region.
