  • Get cleaner photo and make logo more crisp
  • As our region aspires to become a model metropolis, we are growing … today our nine county region has roughly 7 million people.
  • By 2035 we will be home to approximately 2 million more people and 1.7 million more jobs.
  • OUR VIEW IS THAT THE TASK BEFORE EVERY LEADER IN THE BAY IS IS TO, IN THESE DIFFICULT TIMES, TAKE ON THIS CHALLENGE OF GROWTH AND MAKE OUR REGION’S FUTURE MORE LIVABLE AND MORE SUSTAINABLE THAN IT IS TODAY… Our answer was that the Bay Area should be more livable and more sustainable than it is today. How we as a region choose to grow will decide whether or not we can achieve this goal. Greenbelt Alliance believes that growth is neither inherently bad nor inherently good. Instead we see growth as an opportunity. It is a tool that, if used well, can make this amazing region even better than it is today.To use this tool effectively, we have to plan and direct growth to the right places. Instead of building sprawling subdivisions and office parks at the urban edge, we should invest where there are already jobs, shops, services, and other amenities. We should take advantage of our region’s robust networks of trains, buses, and ferries and focus our growth near transit.Now livable and sustainable are, in many ways, buzz words … so let me tell you what livable and sustainable means to me.
  • It means addressing our region’s chronic housing challenge by being conscious to develop a range of housing choices that are affordable at different incomes.
  • Livable and sustainable means healthy communities. High rates of obesity, heart disease, and other health problems are a direct result of sedentary lifestyles. By growing smart, we can create a region with shorter commutes and where physical activity is a pleasant alternative to being in the car.

  • Growing smart will help us do our part to combat climate change – and the droughts, wildfires (TRANSITION TO SLIDE #2) flooding and other problems resulting from climate change.SLIDE 3: In the Bay Area, the transportation sector acounts for 40% of our greenhouse gas emissions. In the Bay Area, we drive the equivalent of 300 times to the moon and back each day (GET LINK FROM HOLLY). By planning for growth where walking and using transit are viable alternatives to driving we can reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. The state’s global warming laws AB 32 and SB 375 make California a leader in our nation’s effort to tackle climate change. Now these laws have to be effectively implemented. By Growing Smart the Bay Area can set the standard for how to meet the goals of AB 32 and SB 375. MORE REFERENCE TO THE SCS PROCESS

  • And by Growing Smart we will protect the iconic landscapes that are so integral to the identity of the Bay Area.The Bay Area’s open spaces provide benefits to everyone -- even if you are not a hiker. SLIDE #2: Our farms and natural areas provide us with fresh food, clean water, and tourist dollars that help to fuel our $400 billion dollar economy.Last February we published – along with the Bay Area Open Space Council and the Association of Bay Area Governments, with the help of the Coastal Conservancy and over 100 other organizations – Golden Lands, Golden Opportunity, a report demonstrating these benefits.We have copies of Golden Lands, Golden Opportunity available here today.
