Learn about land use planning in the face of climate change

FALLBROOK – The North County Climate Change Alliance information presentation for May will feature Jana Clark, from the Cleveland National Forest Foundation (CNFF). The presentation will be screened Wednesday, May 11, at 6 p.m. in the Fallbrook Library.

CNFF is working to support sustainable land use, urban infill, and growth patterns that protect the vital wilderness and agricultural areas. CNFF monitors the progress of decisions that affect natural resources including the county's General Plan updates, SANDAG's Regional Transportation Plan, subdivision and development permitting, and more.

Creating a functioning mass transit system will result in improving greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution, energy consumption, quality of life, and land use decisions. CNFF has its version of Transit San Diego and recently caused SANDAG to modify its long range Regional Transit Plan (RTP).

The RTP is the subject of a half cent sales tax hike proposed for the November ballot. A transit plan is an integral part of climate action and any land use planning that must account for it.

Clark is a faculty member at DeAnza Community College in Cupertino, where she instructs environmental studies courses.
