Sustainable urban environments are about more than just a collection of green buildings. Cities can be re-envisioned with strategic investments that demonstrate a commitment to accelerated neighborhood sustainability. Darin Dinsmore and Rob Bennett will discuss planning frameworks, policies, community engagement and capacity building. Hear about real-life examples that demonstrate how a performance‐based approach can improve competitive advantage, communities and quality of life. Co-presented with ULI San Francisco and USGBC-NCC Residential Green Building Advocacy and Local Advocacy Committees.
