Calthorpe Associated contributed “Smart Growth Development” guidelines, discussions, and case studies to the California Energy Commission’s (CEC) 2011 Energy Aware Planning Guide. Working as a subconsultant to Cambridge Systematics, Calthorpe Associates contributed case studies about successful smart growth projects ranging from greenfield projects, to transit-oriented development (TOD), to commercial redevelopment, and industrial redevelopment sites. Each study includes a discussion of the opportunities and barriers associated with the project, and implementation strategies that served to the projects and planning processes.
