The Center for Law, Energy, and the Environment (CLEE) at UC Berkeley School of Law and the Terner Center for Housing Innovation at UC Berkeley (collectively the “Centers”), with support from Next 10, prepared this report to assess the environmental and economic impacts of housing production scenarios that could help meet the state’s proposed 2030 greenhouse gas reduction target under Senate Bill 32. This report also offers best practices and policy recommendations for state and local governments to boost housing production within California’s existing urban footprint. The Centers have assessed existing data and consulted with development experts to quantify the costs and benefits of a 2030 growth scenario that can inform state and local policy going forward.
