New state laws coordinate regional planning for transportation and housing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and highlight public participation in those processes. These changes raise a key question for local officials:
How can city and county officials play a leadership role to ensure that regional plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions reflect the needs and values of their residents?
Join our expert panel for an online discussion of this important question, along with strategies you can adapt for your community.
This webinar includes:
- An overview of the opportunities and requirements for public participation when developing Sustainable Communities Strategies; and
- Examples of successful strategies that local and regional officials have used to foster public participation in regional “Blueprint” planning, and other regional efforts, that can be adapted for use with Sustainable Communities Strategies.
This webinar, presented on July 7, 2010, was part of a series of events offered by the Institute for Local Government to foster dialogue among local officials and to provide guidance to state agencies on local perspectives related to sustainable community planning at the local level.
The Institute for Local Government is the research and education arm of the League of California Cities and the California State Association of Counties.
