SB 375 has been called the state's most important land-use law since the Coastal Act. Recently enacted, the bill alters decades of practice in land use planning, transportation funding, and CEQA law, all in an effort to get Californians to drive fewer miles and help slow global climate change.
Key questions remain, however, about how it will work in practice. Bill sponsor Tom Adams of the California League of Conservation Voters will join Mike Woo, Mike McKeever, developers, local planners and other stakeholders to examine crucial implementation questions, such as:
- What do the new requirements mean for developers, local governments, regional planning organizations, housing advocates, environmentalists, and commuters?
- What role will the state have in setting greenhouse gas reduction targets?
- How will regions and local governments plan to meet those targets?
- What incentives will encourage on-the-ground development to conform to blue-sky planning?
- How will CEQA practice change, both for would-be plaintiffs and the defense bar?
- Can we reduce the risks to housing groups and local communities from these widespread changes?
Join us for this closer look at our land use future.
