CSG Volunteer Interest Form
Dear CSG Volunteers! You are receiving this message because you have indicated an interest in volunteering your time to help advance CSG's advocacy for safe streets, public transit, affordable housing, and transit-oriented development.
Unfortunately, as you know, the era of COVID has eliminated our in-person events, where volunteers were always extremely helpful. But we have identified several opportunities where we could use some help!

Smart Growth Photo Team
We always need high quality photos depicting great smart growth policies in action (affordable housing, missing middle housing, transit-oriented development, walkable communities etc) as well as the not so great (massive parking lots, terrible sprawl, blocked bike lanes) to use in our email communications, presentations, and on social media. At a moment of great urgency -- to create more sustainable and equitable communities and fight climate change, photos are a powerful educational tool.
You don't have to be an award-winning photographer, we just need a group of dedicated smart growth supporters to (safely!) get out in their neighborhoods and capture the real life examples of sustainable communities and the places in need of transformation. We'll send out more information, including some tips and tricks for effective amateur photography, including using your smart phones, to those interested. We will give full credit to you for your photo contributions.
We have a very small staff and we do our best to keep track of land use, transportation, and housing policies across the region, but sometimes we're stretched extremely thin! Often there are weeks where there are several relevant meetings in one regional area, and our staff simply cannot attend them all. This is where you come in.
We will identify meetings that volunteers can attend in lieu of a staff member. All you have to do is pay attention, take notes, and email them to CSG. We will highlight in advance any key issues in the meeting you should pay special attention to. For those unfamiliar with local and regional government processes, this is a great opportunity to learn, and we'll provide briefings to bring you up to speed.
I want to help by:
Taking photos in my community
Attending government meetings (virtual for now) for CSG
I want to help in another way!
If you have other skills or resources that you think could help the CSG team in a virtual capacity, let us know!
