Santa Clara Valley Agricultural Plan
Cultivate is part of a collaborative planning effort led by Santa Clara County and the Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority (OSA) to protect important working lands to minimize the impacts of climate change and to chart a more resilient future. This effort culminated in the preparation of a regional “action plan” that links agricultural preservation, thoughtful land use planning and climate adaptation planning into a singular Valley Agricultural Plan. This effort is funded by the Sustainable Agricultural Lands Conservation Program (SALCP) to meet the State’s climate adaptation goals by making strategic investments to protect agricultural lands. The Valley Agricultural Plan can be found here.

MIDDLE GREEN VALLEY SPECIFIC PLAN
Working for Solano County, Amie and Brendan were the project managers for a team that led a two-year community advisory process to prepare a Specific Plan with associated EIR describing an innovative agriculturally centered community. They were the principal authors of the Specific Plan which included a form-based “Neighborhood Code” that is based on sustainable, low-impact development principles. This work was completed while Amie and Brendan were Principals at Hart Howerton. Find the Specific Plan here.
