"The San Diego Tijuana Sustainable Urban Vision."
With a growth of over 16 million people living in this area, a plan developed
by the San Diego Regional Energy Office will show how this extreme population
boom can co-exist with the environment and has solved transportation, energy
water availability, infrastructure problems—all without borders. The plan won
2nd Place in a worldwide competition that needed to show emerging technologies
and innovative policies that create communities by 2103 that do not
contribute to global warming.
Come listen to how the plan was conceived and can be implemented from project
managers and director of the "The San Diego Tijuana Sustainable Urban
Vision." Former Planning Director Carlos Graizbord will present some specifics and
how the plan won 2nd Place in a world competition.
The report shows that if technologies it recommends are implemented, sprawl
would disappear and a compact, livable, economically balanced and
environmentally healthy region would emerge.
