Moderator: Elizabeth Macdonald, Associate Professor, City and Regional Planning and Urban Design

Building and portraying smart-growth scenarios is an important part of the sustainable communities planning process under SB 375. Especially needed are visualization processes that can engage communities and stakeholders and help them build agreement on how to more forward with urban design and land use initiatives that contribute in both small and large ways to sustainability goals.

IURD brings together four leaders in the planning and urban design fields who will talk about best practices in building scenarios for sustainable growth and in representing the built form and environmental outcomes. Using examples that derive from their professional practice and research, the presentations and discussion will encompass planning and design projects at neighborhood, citywide, and regional scales. Topics will include restructuring suburban strip corridors, EPA efforts related to street design, green infrastructure as a shaper of neighborhood design, transit and land use connections and resulting greenhouse gas impacts, and links between regional planning and climate change.

This is the fourth session in IURD's new speaker series - “Growing Sustainably in a Low-Carbon World.”
