The cornerstone project of the Alliance for Environmental Leadership is the Citizen Initiated Smart Growth Plan. This is a development template citizens everywhere. Citizens of Placer County self-funded and produced this plan, an alternative development vision to the County’s auto-centric, urban sprawl development vision. You can access the Plan here. Phase 1 is the zoning plan. Phase 2 is the housing and job strategy. We are pleased to make both available to citizens like us who feel compelled to take a leadership role because the elected officials are failing us.

 

 

This large map is the urban sprawl zoning map that the County is planning. Overlaid in the center is AEL’s Smart Growth plan, concentrating development and preserving critical open space.  This prairie landscape is critical to the survival of resident and migratory species and will be lost under the County’s plan.
