  5. 5. Smart Growth, Green Cities with Climate Change and Adaptation Building Codes Go Green: Cities are working to make new buildings, especially those built with city money, more efficient Greening Existing Buildings: Cities’ Biggest Challenge The biggest and quickest cut that cities can make in carbon is from “greening” current structures. Mass retrofits also create new jobs. The Financing Puzzle For Retrofits Cities and their partners are working to figure out how to pay for retrofits, in hopes of launching wide-scale programs that can lead to big cuts in emissions. Innovative Approaches New energy efficiency financing models are cropping up across the nation Green Buildings For All Cities need to make sure that low-income families benefit from the greening of homes and apartments.Asif Kabani andMaliha A.

  6. 6. Smart Growth, Green Cities with Climate Change and Adaptation Investing in green jobs a priority: Cities are poised to help implement the policy, but the field is still more a concept than a reality. Which Green Jobs? All kinds, but the first wave is most likely to come from energy efficiency. How Cities Have Progressed Cities want to attract green jobs — and they have a few programs in place. But, so far, the sector is much more concept than reality The Challenges Cities Face Cities need help to overcome two key obstacles: attracting green businesses and training residents for the new jobs that come with them.Asif Kabani andMaliha A.

  9. 9. Smart Growth, Green Cities with Climate Change and Adaptation The Rebirth Of Mass Transit More people are riding trains and buses — and cities across the country are starting to shun car-led development and invest in transit growth. Leading the way on transit Cities are viewing transit and land-use policies as tools for creating and equitable green economy. Coordinating and Funding Mass Transit More cities want to be on the mass transit train, but finding the resources to expand their systems remains a major hurdle. Transportation For All Cities need to make sure new transit connects all kinds of neighborhoods and provides opportunities for low-income people.Asif Kabani andMaliha A. Kabani
