Ahead of the American Planning Association’s national conference in Seattle, WA next week, STAR Communities is proud to release our first case study, featuring examples from Plano, TX and Phoenix, AZ.
The case study shows how cities and counties can use the STAR Community Rating System to guide the development of a comprehensive plan and then measure subsequent implementation. It demonstrates ways to increase accountability for results through the incorporation of metrics and best practices from STAR into comprehensive plans.
This case study is based off of our webinar on Best Practices for Integrating Sustainability into Long-Range Planning, held in January 2015 in conjunction with the Sustainable Communities Division of the American Planning Association.
