Integrating Rural and Urban Planning: Working Together to Support California’s Diverse Communities

West Sacramento Community Center, West Sacramento

Friday, October 20 8:30A - 10:30A

The rural areas of California have never been more important to the overall economic and social health of the state of California. As the state struggles with the issues of drought, groundwater management, climate change, forest health and fire prevention, and economic development, the diverse rural regions of California provide many opportunities for statewide solutions. State and regional planning rarely consider rural issues to the degree urban communities are studied and planned. In order for California to successfully address these challenges and benefit all residents, policymakers and planners need to understand the interconnections between rural and urban communities and engage with and invest in rural communities to develop strategies and programs that meet their needs. This session will explore tools and opportunities that could strengthen the health and prosperity of rural California and increase statewide sustainability.

How has the Sacramento Region made progress on sustainability, climate change, smart growth over the last 10 years? This session will retrospectively examine what we’ve learned in the last ten years, and how these lessons can inform the planning profession in the next year. We’ve promoted smart growth principles, the Blueprint, sustainable practices and climate action. We’ve experienced the great recession and a severe drought. We’re dealing with significant changes at the national level and assessing what it means for Sacramento and California. What have we learned and how can we apply lessons learned to the future? If only we had a crystal ball!
