Sustainable Development Code is launching!

As many of you know, Jonathan Rosenbloom (Drake) has been working on updating the Sustainable Development Code, and it is about to re-launch.  Visit sustainablecitycode.org.  More info below.

Also, Jon is working with other land use professors' classes to have students assist in drafting these chapters.  I've integrated this assignment into my class this semester and it has worked really well.  In fact, we are even going to have the students present their SDC section drafts in a CLE for local practitioners we're calling, "Lessons for Fast-Growth Cities:  What Works and Why."  Should be a lot of fun.  

 

Our mission is to help local governments build more resilient, environmentally conscious, economically secure, and socially equitable communities.

Our recommendations are structured around 32 subchapters that focus on different sustainable development challenges.

On May 15 we will launch two fully drafted subchapters—climate change and wildlife habitat protection—as well as portions of each of the 30 other subchapters.

With more than 250 free, fully searchable recommendations supported by over 1,000 local ordinances, the SDC is the perfect place to dive in and start tackling some of our communities’ most pressing issues.

Please forward this notice to anyone working
with or for local governments.
