Defining Good Infill 
Ethan Elkind   - April 23, 2012

Defining Good Infill

​On March 9, 2012, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, and UCLA Schools of Law hosted a convening at UC Berkeley on Senate Bill 226 (Simitian), California’s 2011 law to streamline environmental review for eligible infill projects under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). This report provides a brief overview of SB 226 and its implementation and a summary of the March 9, 2012 discussion.

An Environmental Blueprint for California

​California's long-term prosperity is vulnerable to climate change, energy insecurity, environmental threats to public health, and a growing scarcity of key resources. Governor Brown has a tremendous opportunity to build on the state's past environmental successes, bringing enormous benefits to our economy and public health.

Our Blueprint describes three key areas that Governor Brown must focus on to ensure a healthy environmental future for all Californians. He must strengthen California's foundation for environmental protection. He must promote specific initiatives to address climate and energy instability. And he must advance cost-effective initiatives in traditional areas of environmental concern, such as water quality, water supply, coastal resources, chemical risks, air quality and biodiversity.
