To support "YouChoose Bay Area" (a.k.a. Envision Bay Area), an effort to reduce carbon emissions in California using the Internet, public radio and public television to inform the community
As a way to increase resident involvement in Northern California’s pressing land use issues, this grant will help launch an Internet, public radio, television and community information campaign called "YouChoose Bay Area" (a.k.a. Envision Bay Area).
Land use planning is a mystery to many people, yet it has a great impact on their lives and the community. Using a series of “what if” scenarios enhanced by visualization tools, this project will provide residents with the information they need to develop a deeper understanding of policy decisions and their impact.
