New Magazine covers Affordable Housing & Sustainability

Sustainable Communities Magazine is a bimonthly journal edited for city officials and housing development professionals that covers changing land use rules, environmental requirements, and new urban planning initiatives. It covers local efforts nationwide to improve land use policies to encourage affordable housing as a key component of what makes cities and towns sustainable, including how to fight NIMBY and improve community relations.

The premier issue features articles on how to keep housing affordable along transit routes as dozens of US cities expand their train lines, plus a story on new green building requirements in California, a piece on the economic benefits to cities of compact, transit-oriented development, as well as many other articles.

Sustainable Communities Magazine is published by the Partnership for Sustainable Communities,® a nonprofit organization based in San Rafael, CA. Subscriptions are offered as a benefit of membership in the organization.

Interested parties can view a FREE sample issue at the PSC web site,
