In recent months, Sacramento, Los Angeles and San Diego all produced draft Sustainable Communities Strategies in response to SB 375, a 2008 bill that requires a coordinated land use and transportation plan to reduce per capita climate emissions in California’s major regions. What can we learn from these other regions about the implementation of SB 375 and the prospects for better regional planning statewide? Hear from three of the state’s leading advocates for effective strategies. With Stuart Cohen from TransForm, Eliot Rose from the Center for Resource Efficient Communities, and Amanda Eaken from the Natural Resources Defense Council.
