SB 1000 requires general plans in California to address environmental justice (EJ), either as a stand-alone element or integrated into other applicable elements. This session will cover EJ basics, SB 1000’s specific requirements, implementation guidance from the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR), and practical examples and lessons learned in planning for the needs of disadvantaged communities. The goals of this session include: help planners understand what EJ means and how it can be applied through planning; clarify the specific requirements of SB 1000, including when and to whom the requirements apply, how to define “disadvantaged communities”, and how EJ considerations must be addressed at the general plan level through policy and implementation; hear from OPR staff on the latest General Plan Guidelines update effort, including guidance on implementing SB 1000 requirements; and review key principles, best practices, and lessons learned from “early adopter” communities in addressing the needs of disadvantaged communities through planning.
