Can California Make a Difference on Climate?
How California's climate polices and Jerry Brown's Under2MOU movement are moving ahead, in spite of the void in Washington.
On Friday, May 19, 2017, please join MCL for our second breakfast meeting of the year with Ken Alex, Director of the Office of Planning and Research.
As the Director of OPR, Ken Alex serves as Senior Policy Advisor to Governor Jerry Brown on a wide range of land use and climate-related policy issues. He also chairs the State’s Strategic Growth Council, which comprises the Secretaries of Food and Agriculture, Cal EPA, Natural Resources, State Transportation, Health and Human Services, and Business, Consumer Services, and Housing, plus three public members. During his tenure as director, Ken has led a broad effort to modernize land use planning through greater transparency; easier access and local application through mapping tools, templates, and streamlined permits; reduced barriers to in-fill development; promotion of transit oriented development; protection of agricultural land and open space; recognition of water constraints; and updated general plan and CEQA guidelines.
Tickets are $15 for MCL members and $20 for non-members. Join MCL here! Registration includes full breakfast buffet.
