California legislators get a lesson in Sustainable Communities
ClimatePlan Blog – March 15, 2013
By Chanell Fletcher, ClimatePlan Policy Coordinator
Last week, ClimatePlan celebrated a milestone in Sacramento, hosting our first legislative briefing, Building Sustainable Communities. The event, which was co-sponsored by the Honorable Speaker John A. Pérez, drew over fifty legislators, staffers, and members of the public who were eager to learn more about creating healthy, equitable, and sustainable communities. With one of the highest influx of freshman legislators in years, it was vital to inform incoming legislators on the importance of SB 375 and their role to ensure its success in California. We highlighted the connection between transportation, affordable housing, public health, and conservation and how we can achieve benefits for all Californians with smart planning.
