Overview

OurCounty is a regional sustainability plan for Los Angeles. It is the boldest county sustainability plan in the nation.

OurCounty focuses on people. It outlines what local governments and stakeholders can do to enhance the well-being of every community in the County while reducing damage to the natural environment and adapting to the changing climate, particularly focusing on those communities that have been disproportionately burdened by environmental pollution. This plan envisions streets and parks that are accessible, safe, and welcoming to everyone; air, water, and soil that are clean and healthy; affordable housing that enables all residents to thrive in place; and a just economy that runs on renewable energy instead of fossil fuels.

Who prepared the plan?

The L.A. County Chief Sustainability Office led the development of OurCounty, 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 was provided by Estolano LeSar Advisors; Fehr & Peers; Gladstein, Neandross & Associates; Global Green; Studio-MLA; Raimi + Associates; and Toole Design.

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

Gary Gero, Chief Sustainability Officer
