ULI Colorado / Boulder Chapter presents:
Growing Cooler - What the land use-carbon footprint connection means for Boulder and for Colorado
Leading urban planning researchers have documented evidence that shows better-planned, less automobile-dependent urban growth is essential to limiting our community’s carbon footprint.
What is Boulder’s role in ‘Growing Cooler’? How might plans to ‘Grow Cooler’ affect the way we think about affordable housing? Transportation? Redevelopment of underused sites? Economic vitality? How does this relate to regional and federal efforts such as the new “Obama Trifecta” partnership among HUD, DOT, and EPA to encourage smart growth?
This stimulating breakfast session will feature Jerry Walters, co-author of the 2007 ULI book Growing Cooler: The Evidence on Urban Development and Climate Change. The book influenced climate change legislative proposals across the US, including Colorado. Jerry Walters is a principal with Fehr & Peers Associates, a California-based transportation planning and engineering firm. He directs integrated land use/transportation research and planning throughout the US and abroad.
