The Strategic Growth Council (SGC) has released a Request for Information (RFI) seeking public input on ways to influence the way California builds and connects communities through strategic growth. Strategic growth is defined as an inclusive, coordinated, interagency approach to development and conservation that helps protect our health and natural environment and make our neighborhoods and communities more resilient, culturally and economically vibrant, and socially diverse, for the benefit of all Californians.
The RFI builds on SGC’s Resolution on Housing, Climate, and Equity, which creates a framework for elevating and coordinating the growing number of goals, policies, and programs designed to address the state’s entwined housing, climate, and equity crises. The purpose of this RFI is to identify solutions, education opportunities, and tailored efforts the State can take to leverage and align existing legislative and budget actions with the explicit outcome of making these investments and policy solutions more accessible and usable for local, regional, and community implementers.
Submit your response to the RFI by March 31, 2023, to be considered.
Please submit your response to the RFI via this form.
We may post your responses to the RFI on the SGC website without editing them, including any business or personal information you provided. Everything you submit in response to the RFI, including attachments and other supporting materials, will be part of the public record and subject to public disclosure. Do not enclose any information considered confidential or inappropriate for public disclosure.
SGC’s Resolution on Housing, Climate, and Equity (“Council Priority 3” or “Priority 3”) creates a framework for elevating and coordinating the growing number of goals, policies, and programs designed to address the state’s entwined housing, climate, and equity crises. Leveraging the Council’s position as a public interagency body, Priority 3 aims to build awareness of and access to opportunities across the state, as well as to identify additional strategies to meet the State’s housing, climate, and equity goals in a coordinated manner, through a combination of public engagement, technical assistance, and coordination across traditional silos of policy and planning. In turn, Priority 3 will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance community resilience while advancing equity and expanding the number of Californians that share in the state's economic and environmental wealth.
