As part of a faculty research project funded by the Bedrosian Center, Tang and Kwon examined the number of cities in California that have already developed strategic sustainability plans and if these plans are contributing to rigorous actions, such as smart-growth land use.
Professor Shui-Yan Tang and Dr. Myungjung Kwon presented findings from their study: Examining Strategic Sustainability Plans and Rigorous Sustainability Actions in California Cities. They look at what obstacles keep cities from adopting or implementing strategic sustainability plans. The study was funded, in part, by the Bedrosian Center on Governance. Photos by Aubrey Hicks
