Rethinking How We Build So Californians Can Drive Less

Wednesday, July 1, 2020

Taking full effect this summer, SB 743 will ensure that new development projects are built in a way that allows Californians to drive less. The goal is more communities where we can travel shorter distances during our daily routines, spending less time behind the wheel and more time doing the things we love.
Join us for a conversation on how this change will make California more connected and healthier for all.
