About the Smart Growth Project
The Smart Growth Strategy/Regional
Livability Footprint Project is a visioning effort of elected officials,
local and regional government staff, community representatives,
regional stakeholders, and economic, equity and environmental coalitions. The Project seeks
to determine and lay out strategies for how the nine-county Bay
Area can grow smarter and become more sustainable over the next
20 years and beyond. The three Project
Goals are discussed in detail on our Project
- Create a smart growth land use vision for the Bay Area. (Achieved!)
- Identify and obtain regulatory changes and incentives needed
to accomplish these objectives.
- Develop 20-year land use and transportation projections
based on the vision. (Achieved!)
While Goals 1 and 2 have been achieved, the project's pursuit of regulatory changes and other tools for smart growth implementation is ongoing.
