Land Use / Open Space

Our Land Use / Open Space Committee advocates a balance between economic development and environmental quality through smart growth strategies. Projects and issues focus on open space and connectivity as part of a regional trails system, desert preservation, infill development and pedestrian-oriented design, all toward the ultimate goal of building more livable, walkable and sustainable communities.
