California’s plan to cut greenhouse gases would reduce sprawl
California’s plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions includes rules to reduce urban sprawl.
California’s plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions includes rules to reduce urban sprawl. In Sacramento, the plan accommodates an almost 40 percent increase in population (870,000 new residents) with an expansion of the area’s urban footprint of just 7 percent — mostly protecting the valuable farmland outside existing urban areas by building more densely within. Presumably, local planning and zoning would be changed to accommodate these objectives.
