  • The Science Behind Sustainable Communities Strategies


    Sierra Hearing Room, 2nd Floor, Cal/EPA Building
    1001 I Street, Sacramento, California

    California’s landmark Sustainable Communities and Climate Protection Law (Senate Bill 375) ushered in a new era of regional planning. Passed in 2008, SB 375 aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through better coordination and alignment of regional transportation planning with local land use planning. Each of the state’s eighteen Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) was charged with creating a “Sustainable Communities Strategy” (SCS) as part of their Regional Transportation Plan. The SCS contains land use, housing, and transportation strategies that, if implemented, would allow the region to achieve state defined targets for greenhouse gas emissions reductions from passenger vehicle use.
