Bay Area cities can learn a great deal from one another about how to do infill well.


Many Bay Area cities have embraced smarter growth in recent years. Now, if the region's growth is to be sustainable for its residents and for the climate, it is time to focus new growth inward, in existing cities.

These twelve cities offer examples of places where municipal action is helping infill development revitalize neighborhoods or entire towns.

“If the Bay Area gets serious about smart growth, we can lead the nation toward greener, more equitable development. Every city has a part to play. If we get it right, the future will be better—for our communities, our landscapes, and the climate.”
