The Sustainable "Medicine Show" Environmental Forum of Marin - Land Use and Transportation

Editor's Note:  Caution: Many of the audience members are well known "housing lobbyists"  with close industry ties to development.  There is no effective counterpoint to the flawed data and assumptions discussed.  The Marin County has spoken loud  and clear in their preference for rural/suburban character.  These folks are the ones pushing the vision for an urbanized Marin especially along the corridor of 101 Freeway.  (For fun, count the number of times you hear the word "sustainable". ) Intensive development is certain to create more traffic, pollution, crime and other ills of urban life.  We will Save Marin Again.

Lecture Series 2014: Changes, Challenges and Choices
Transportation & Land Use, Growth, Housing and Traffic

Speakers describe the patterns of our lives in Marin -- who we are, where we live, and how we travel about, and how these contribute to this global crisis. They talk about the various ways that we can individually, as a neighborhood, and as a larger community respond to the changes in our climate and our planet.

The audience will be introduced to the challenges of planning for change and to the strategies statewide and beyond to reduce the impacts of fossil fuel on our future. Participants will also learn about the secondary benefits of planning for land use and transportation improvements, including public health, the economy and quality of life.
