Building a Better Bay Area

East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy has put together a guide titled “Building a Better Area: Community Benefit Tools and Case Studies to Achieve Responsible Development.”

Containing close to 200 community benefit policies and fifteen case studies, Building a Better Bay Area shows that a wide range of innovative efforts is being implemented all across the region. More and more local jurisdictions are finding that “development as usual” is not enough to improve conditions for residents, and are realizing instead the value of steering development to create concrete community benefits. Spearheaded by coalitions of community stakeholders working with elected officials and developers, these responsible development efforts are helping to build a better Bay Area where prosperity and opportunity are shared more broadly.
