Cities worldwide, including those in Texas, are evaluating how to shape communities to be more equitable, resilient, and sustainable. Dallas City Council implemented their Comprehensive Environmental and Climate Action Plan (CECAP) in Spring of 2020. Areas such as Austin, San Antonio, and Houston are developing similar plans – all of which provide excellent framework for cities still looking to develop sustainable criteria for new planning and building development. This three-part series will start first at a local level by discussing the goals and categories of the Dallas CECAP, moving regionally to conversations happening around the DFW/North Texas region, and finish with a review of metropolitan plans / policy in other areas of Texas. We will also discuss how the professional community can support local jurisdictional efforts to build more sustainable communities.
Series appropriate for architects, engineers, consultants, contractors, city employees, elected officials, and concerned citizens.
