Sustainable Communities

Planning for development that allows residents to rely less on individual cars, and provides greater opportunities for walking, biking and access to clean transit options, is what sustainable communities are all about.

By coordinating transportation and land use planning to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, California is working not only towards more sustainable communities, but healthier and more livable ones, as well.
