Growing Beautiful Communities is an independently-produced documentary building upon the themes in Lauren Michele’s book Policy in Motion: Transportation Planning in California after AB 32. Through interviews with policy leaders and planners in transportation and sustainability ­fields, Growing Beautiful Communities depicts how the POD (People Oriented Development) concept can be used as a process to not only help California meet its greenhouse gas reduction goals but also to create sustainable communities and beautiful places to live. Growing Beautiful Communities depicts how an integrated approach to transportation planning and funding can improve community quality of life while meeting California’s environmental and economic goals.
