APA Los Angeles Section Award, Innovation in Green Community Planning (2014)
SCAG Sustainability Award (2014)
Through a grant from the Southern California Association of Governments, Dyett & Bhatia worked with the City to produce a systematic evaluation of the best practices for zoning provisions that will help San Gabriel become a “greener” and more resource-efficient place. With that information, the San Gabriel City Council will be able to adopt portions of a new zoning code and revised development codes that achieve a new standard of “green” in a way that makes sense for San Gabriel.
Dyett & Bhatia conducted stakeholder interviews and interactive community workshops, which incorporated multilingual outreach techniques to ensure a broad spectrum of participants.
Dyett & Bhatia also evaluated the City’s existing development regulations and developed code amendments to better implement sustainability principles, attract high quality development meeting community needs, and respond to City planning policies and State and federal mandates.
