Coalition for a Livable Future

An amazing model from our neighbors to the south of a broad alliance of various citizen groups that are "working together to create a more equitable and sustainable Portland metropolitan region." Looking at their on-going programs, it looks like they are concentrating on several areas with program initiatives for each:

Afforable Housing NOW!
Nature in the Neighborhoods

As well as ongoing mapping and planning efforts like the Regional Equity Atlas Project and, of great interest to OSS:2100 subscribers, the Designing Urban Habitats program. This seems like exemplary work that I hope will be discussed during Mike Houck's discussion on December 5th as part of a great partnership with DPD's Urban Sustainabilty Forum Speaker Series.
