Sustainable Orange County

Built Environment Subcommittee

August 19, 2013


What is sustainability

What is Sustainability?

“Sustainability is a dynamic, democratic process through which communities plan to meet the needs of current and future generations without compromising the ecosystems upon which they depend by balancing social, economic, and environmental resources, incorporating resilience, and linking local actions to global and regional concerns.”


What is sustainability1

What is Sustainability?

“Sustainable communities encourage people to work together to create healthy communities where natural and historic resources are preserved, jobs are available, sprawl is contained, neighborhoods are secure, education is lifelong, transportation and health care are accessible, and all citizens have opportunities to improve the quality of their lives.”

Energy water efficiency

Energy & Water Efficiency

  • Goal: Improve the energy and water efficiency of the community’s residential, commercial, and institutional building stock

  • Targets:

    • Reduce the energy use intensity of the community’s building stock 25% by 2020, 50% by 2040

    • Reduce the water use per capita 25% by 2020, 50% by 2040


Energy water efficiency strategies

Quality (surface water bodies, contamination sites, stormwater management)

Use (potable/non-potable, household, irrigation, energy production, reuse)

Renewable energy

Renewable Energy

  • Goal: Provide affordable and secure renewable energy supplies that minimize environmental pollution, conserve natural resources and benefit the local economy

  • Targets:

    • Increase the use of renewable energy production in commercial and residential buildings by 10% by 2020, 25% by 2040

Urban design and placemaking1

Urban Design and Placemaking

  • 12 TRANSIT AREAS

  • CURRENT DENSITY (1/2 MILE)

    • Range 0.38 to 3.69 units per acre

    • Average less than 2 units per acre

  • TO REACH TRANSIT DENSITY TARGET 7 UNITS/ACRE:

    • Add 18,873 units by 2040

    • 2,696 units per area

Urban Design and Placemaking

  • WALKABLE AREAS

    • 31 areas range 0.37 to 5.31 units per acre

    • Currently average 2.94 units per acre

    • Pop: 82,935

    • DU: 37,527

    • Area: 12,781

    • Du/ac: 2.94


Urban design and placemaking5

Urban Design and Placemaking

  • Goal: Concentrate development in compact, human-scaled, walkable centers and neighborhoods that connect to transit, offer diverse uses and services, and provide housing options for families of all income levels.

  • Targets:

    • 10 minute walk for daily needs for 33% of residents of the urban service area by 2040

    • _% Residents near .5 mi of open space by 2020, __ by 2040

Infill and redevelopment

Infill and Redevelopment

  • Goals: Focus new growth in infill areas and on redevelopment that does not require the extension of water, sewer, and road infrastructure or facilitate sprawl

  • Targets

    • Increase the percentage of new development in locally-designated infill and redevelopment area, previously developed, brownfield, and greyfield sites

Workforce housing

Workforce Housing

  • Goals: Promote the development and preservation of workforce housing through innovative policy recommendations that will improve the production and sustainability or workforce housing in Orange County

  • Targets

    • Demonstrate that 10% of residential units built or substantially rehabilitated in the past 3 years in the community’s Compact & Complete Centers (CCCs) are dedicated as affordable housing
