Eco-Districts. Wednesday, April 17; 7-9 PM in Sunnyvale

Please join me for another Informative talk on land use:

Introduction to Eco-Districts. Wednesday, April 17; 7-9 PM; Sunnyvale Heritage Park Museum, 570 East Remington Drive Sunnyvale. 

The eco-district concept is emerging a as a promising way to create a more sustainable city, not building-by-building, but neighborhood-by-neighborhood. Kate McGee, Lead Planner for the City of San Francisco's Sustainable Development Program, will share what she has learned about the eco-district concept and discuss San Francisco's Central Corridor Eco-District, now in the early stages of the planning process. Q&A to follow.

What is an eco-district? How is San Francisco applying the concept?
The eco-district is a promising path toward creating a more sustainable
city, neighborhood-by-neighborhood rather than building-by-building.
Portland, the Portland Sustainability Institute, and an increasing number of cities
across the country are looking at the district or neighborhood as the
optimal scale for accelerating the adoption of resource-efficient practices,
integrating buildings, infrastructure and community action.

Free. Pre-registration requested:
