Event description

Description

Over the past seven years, the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR) and the Strategic Growth Council (SGC) have been promoting and implementing ambitious state policies and programs, and developing useful tools and guidelines for state and local jurisdictions. Now, as the Brown Administration rounds out its final term in office, OPR and SGC’s focus is on assisting jurisdictions in implementing those policies, programs, and tools. OPR and SGC, in cooperation with APA California, are holding a workshop designed to provide guidance and promote best practices and lessons learned for state and local implementation. With session topics ranging from the updated CEQA and General Plan guidelines, to the launch of the state’s Integrated Climate Adaptation and Resiliency Program (ICARP) and other state climate initiatives, to guidance on applying for and implementing SGC’s California Climate Investment programs, OPR and SGC have specifically designed the sessions of this workshop to anticipate the needs and interests of the attendees.
