Low Carbon Emission Planning

Each project is designed to reduce auto dependency by including pedestrian-oriented master plans and transit-oriented development. Approximately 33% of total U.S Carbon Emissions come from transportation related activities according to the EIA.  New community plans including Albemarle Square in Baltimore, MD, San Ramon City Center near San Francisco, CA, Henson Ridge in Anacostia, Washington, D.C., Columbia Town Center in, Maryland and others are planned in proximity to existing transit or with new transit centers in order reduce auto-related carbon emissions. Pedestrian-oriented plans with walkable streets and mixed-use village centers allow daily trips to local stores, and professional establishments to be within walking distance.
