To help the state meet its climate pollution goals, more development will need to occur in urban areas where residents, workers, and visitors are less dependent upon single vehicle trips. “Climate-Friendly Areas” are intended to be places where people can meet most of their daily needs without having to drive by having housing located near a mix of jobs, businesses, and services. The Climate-Friendly Areas process requires centering voices of underserved populations and working towards equitable outcomes.
