Sierra Club Conservation Policies

Environmental Quality of Settled Areas

The Sierra Club believes that careful planning is necessary in communities to maintain an appropriate relationship between natural features and man’s works. Therefore, in general, the Club supports programs to maintain adequate natural and scenic open space; to conserve pure air and water; and to establish and maintain regional, county, and city parks and greenbelts. Moreover, in principle, the Club supports the regulations of the location, size and character of advertising signs; the screening or removal of nuisance sights; and the placement of utilities underground wherever practical
