As part of its Smart-Growth Outreach contract with the State of Oregon, David Siegel’s past firm prepared a handbook for local governments to use in reducing their carbon footprint. The handbook helps local governments and communities throughout Oregon understand how specific community development, land-use, and transportation techniques can enable us to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The user-friendly handbook is aimed at local elected officials, planning commissioners, planners, community organizations, and developers. How-to strategies, examples and case studies, and public health benefits are referenced in the handbook. The project was awarded the 2012 National Planning Excellence Award for a Best Practice by the American Planning Association.
