The Alliance for Environmental Leadership is a coalition of community influences and organizations determined to reframe the way our community grows and is governed, through citizen advocacy, environmental leadership and by amplifying the voices for social justice.

Our Citizen Initiated Smart Growth Plan is a fully developed and economically supported alternative to urban sprawl that is proposed by the County of Placer for a 15 square mile wetland ecosystem between Roseville and Lincoln in Western Placer County. Our CISGP is groundbreaking, even revolutionary, because it is the first time that a grassroots citizen group, has not simply resisted bad development, but has put forward a fully realized and economically feasible and superior (reduces CO2 by 75% and provides housing for all of the proposed 80,000 new workers) development alternative that fulfills County growth objectives with environmental and social justice at its core. AEL is working to inform our Community, County staff, Commissioners and Board of Supervisors and the Courts about the CISGP and its potential to address longstanding economic discrimination and environmental degradation that has heretofore been the status quo in Placer County.
