SB 375 (September 2008) has been referred to by a few as the “Anti-Sprawl Bill”, or by others as the, “Sustainable Communities Strategies Act”. Either name an individual decides upon, the objective behind SB 375 is to encourage communities to develop land-use, housing, and transportation strategies that work within their particular built environment objectives, while also reducing the amount of green house gas (GHG) emissions produced by cars and light trucks. A key component, within SB 375, for the public, community groups, architects, engineers, city planners, administrators, and local government officials to keep in mind, is that individual communities and sub-regions will be given specific GHG emission reduction targets – they will not be given directives on how to meet their specific target. In other words, individual communities or sub-regions have an opportunity to collaborate, and to participate in, the decision processes that relate to and ultimately determine their local or sub-regional land-use, housing, and transportation policies. Simply stated, under SB 375, a community has an opportunity to maintain its influence over its unique identity. Our Moderator: Julianna Delgado, M.Arch, PhD, AICP, Assoc.
