Greenbelt Alliance works to protect open space and promote livable communities in the San Francisco Bay Area. California’s climate change law (AB32) includes targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions (ghgs) resulting from sprawl and the increases in driving that go with it. Greenbelt Alliance would use this project support grant to help develop a binding regional plan for meeting the ghg reduction targets assigned to improved land-use by the state. The ultimate outcome of this work is to reduce Bay Area greenhouse gas emissions by one million metric tons by focusing new development near transit while reducing sprawl. In addition to ensuring the Bay Area does its part for reducing climate pollution, this resulting regional plan may be a model for other regions of the state.
