Sustainable Land Use

Who We Are:

The Sustainable Land Use Committee (SLU) promotes great, walkable equitable neighborhoods which group new homes, jobs, and shops near quality transit stations and corridors.  New development in our region should reduce greenhouse gas emissions,  protect the natural environment, increase transit use, balance the job/housing ratio, be net zero energy and water, and move the preponderance of new development away from existing single-family neighborhoods, support cleaner mobility choices for local residents and businesses, and expand the range of choices and the variety of services available for all. 

We provide technical support to Cool Cities Teams and local environmental community groups by guiding them through local land use planning processes for projects and plans that pose the opportunity for the community to become more vibrant, walkable, bikeable, and transit accessible.
