Evaluations–UCB/APA CompPlan Sustainability Criteria

During Spring 2014, Assistant Professor Charisma Acey’s undergraduate UC Berkeley class, CP 119 Planning for Sustainability, evaluated the APA’s beta version of their Comprehensive Plan Sustainability Accreditation Criteria for their final class project. Student teams applied the criteria to 11 Bay Area Cities, and their final presentations are listed below by city.

In addition, the APA Sustainability Committee created a CM event to support planner education and share the results with practicing planners in the Northern Section. The event involved attending one of three classes of final presentations and a 30-minute debrief/discussion with Assistant Professor Acey following the presentation. Approximately 10 planners attended and found the event engaging. The Committee may use this experimental event as the basis for developing a more systematic working relationship with the local colleges around sustainability.
