Livable, Affordable Communities for All: How Cities can Create Jobs and Reduce Oil Dependence
Workshop Session I: Friday, March 16, 10:30
a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Concentration: Infrastructure and Cleaner, More Efficient Transportation
historical, automobile-centered development patterns have led to traffic
congestion, dependence on oil, and unhealthy air pollution. But the trend is
changing: California is receiving national attention and interest for its
innovative approaches to sustainable land use and transportation. This workshop
will provide information and updates on California's most recent efforts to
create more livable communities that offer an array of transportation choices.
Panelists will discuss regional plans to implement SB 375, California's effort
to reduce GHGs through better planning; Los Angeles' 30/10 transit expansion
program; and continuing efforts to increase mobility, reduce oil dependence,
and create jobs.
