Envision Burlingame has been recognized as a model case study for how communities can address climate change and sustainability.
The California Strategic Growth Council (SGC) and the California Department of Conservation manage several State initiatives and grant programs focused on addressing sustainability and climate change at the local level. The two agencies recently prepared a Sustainable Planning Best Practices guidebook to help communities better address these issues, and included Envision Burlingame as a best practice case study!
As noted in their report: Planning for sustainable communities is critical – and not only to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions that change our climate, but also for cleaner air, more integrated and efficient energy, water, and resource management, economic vitality, and healthier and more equitable neighborhoods.
