What will the plan address?

Our County will present a comprehensive pathway to sustainability addressing a wide range of subjects including climate change, water, energy, resource management, land use, transportation, open space, biodiversity, public health, economy and workforce development, housing, resilience, and governance. Countywide goals and strategies will be informed by data as well as stakeholder and community engagement.

The planning team will seek input and feedback from community-based organizations and advocacy groups, County agencies and incorporated cities, the private sector, academic researchers, and the general public.

Who is preparing the plan?

The L.A. County Chief Sustainability Office is leading the development of Our County, working with an interdisciplinary team of consultants, led by BuroHappold Engineering and researchers at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), with stakeholder engagement co-leadership from UCLA and Liberty Hill Foundation.

Additional support is being provided by Estolano LeSar Advisors; Fehr & Peers; Gladstein, Neandross & Associates; Global Green; Studio-MLA; and Raimi + Associates.

It’s about making sure that people… have vibrant communities.”

Gary Gero, Chief Sustainability Officer
