Progressive California Planning Evident in the Book of Lists

California is known for being on the cutting edge of progressive planning policies, and this is evident in the recently published 2006 California Planners’ Book of Lists. The Book of Lists is published annually by the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research. Hundreds of cities and counties were surveyed for the publication on a wide-range of planning issues. Some of the more interesting topics in the survey related to this site include form based codes, bicycle and pedestrian plans, healthy community policies, urban growth boundaries, and so on. There are some very interesting facts in this report. One example survey question was “Do you include provisions for walkable or PEDESTRIAN FRIENDLY neighborhoods or development in your general plan?” The jurisdictions that responded “yes” are as follows (as you can see, there is a whole slew of them):
