The Urban Edge

12:30 p.m. | Tuesday, January 21, 2020

One in a series of events on the SPUR Regional Strategy.

We’re improving the SPUR event registration process.
SPUR has launched a new ticketing system and we're asking you to register for each event that you're planning to attend. This will help us keep you informed of any changes that may occur and enable us to better tailor our programming to your interests.


What does it take to manage the urban edge to prevent sprawl and protect agriculture, open space and habitat? Greenbelt Alliance has partnered with SPUR, as part of our Regional Strategy initiative, to produce the briefing paper Managing the Urban Edge. Presenting a range of tools that have proven successful in limiting encroachment across the Bay Area, the report introduces additional strategies linking conservation to climate adaptation while considering the factors driving sprawl today, especially in the Central Valley.
