Los Angeles County Sustainability Plan
Los Angeles County, CA
Raimi + Associates worked as a subconsultant to develop the Los Angeles County Sustainability Plan (LACSP). The LACSP, adopted by the Board of Supervisors in August of 2019, set forth a countywide sustainability framework, which includes a new climate action and adaptation plan. The goal for the LACSP was to create an actionable plan grounded in equity that supports residents' health, environmental sustainability, and economic growth.
Directed by the Chief Sustainability Office, this innovative plan provides a roadmap for County leadership to make decisions and includes a data dashboard to track, monitor, and report on performance while giving specific guidance for achieving indicatorbased targets. Raimi + Associates worked with the project data collection team to advise on public health and adaptation topics; including identifying data gaps and opportunities to address public health, social equity, and human resiliency. R+A also supported stakeholder meeting facilitation and preparation of the overall plan, a role that capitalizes on the team's expertise in the region and work at the intersection of planning, health, and equity.
