This has the beneficial effect of reducing GHGs and regional air quality emissions. But does this new motif have a drawback insofar as placing residential development (and the families that occupy them) in areas adjacent to freeways, rail lines, warehouses and other uses that may create localized levels of toxic air contaminants? This panel will summarize recent legislation and case law, and discuss the multiple priorities that are involving in California’s future development.
