There will be a very interesting APA-sponsored event/training for the
transportation planning rating system STARS on December 8th.
STARS, Sustainable Transportation Analysis & Rating System, is a LEED-like
rating system that was developed by the City of Portland.
Details of Portland's experience can be found here:
Locally, the County of Santa Cruz is implementing STARS as part of its
transportation plan update.
The workshop will describe the tool and provide an interactive case
exercise to demonstrate how it works.
The workshop will be held at the ABAG offices in Oakland between 2-5pm and
there is a registration fee of $25.00.
Approval for 3.0 AICP CM credits is pending.
