A monthly newsletter covering sustainable community planning and development is available free of charge from Partnership for Sustainable Communities (PSC).

“Developers and related professional across the country may not know it yet, but they face the most fundamental changes in land use policy in 50 years, changes that will affect their activities and dictate development opportunities for decades to come,” said Andre Shashaty, PSC’s president.

The newsletter, P4SC Newswire, brings together all the latest news to help developers, planners and related professionals understand the new era of sustainable development and keep pace with changes in land use policy and development and design practice.

For developers, it tells you where to look for opportunities, where to acquire land, how to cope with new green building mandates, how to comply with funders’ increasing interest in “green locations,” and what new state carbon emission reduction goals mean for your projects, said Shashaty.

For planners and city officials, it spots the latest trends in what cities and counties are doing to update their policies and launch new integrated planning efforts around housing and transit to reduce car trips and carbon emissions.

Partnership for Sustainable Communities is a nonprofit organization based in San Rafael, CA.  It is dedicated to promoting land use reform, including higher density zoning, infill transit-oriented development and the availability of affordable housing near jobs and transit.

PSC was founded by Shashaty in 2009.  He was the founding editor and publisher of Affordable Housing Finance magazine.
