Green Zones
Draft Framework for Local Nomination Process - Comments Due July 24, 2020


For Green Means Go to be most effective, Green Zones need to be in areas where new growth is planned and is supported by local policies and actions so that the efforts to accelerate infill, travel choice, and electrification all have potential to be complementary strategies. This local commitment to increased development in Green Zones is the essential first step to transforming these areas over time.

The draft framework for establishing Green Zones is centered around a locally led nomination process. The draft framework outlines the collaborative nomination process, requirements, and timeline. 

SACOG is soliciting comments on the draft framework, draft application, and data tool through July 24, 2020. Please send questions or comments to Jennifer Hargrove at
