SANBAG Transportation Land Use Integration Project

San Bernardino County, California

Gruen Associates worked closely with the San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG) and the Cities of Colton, Fontana, Highland, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga and Rialto to locate opportunity sites in areas along transit corridors in San Bernardino County’s Long Range Plan. Our vision for the opportunity sites are compact, pedestrian-friendly transit villages, which integrate various communities’ land use and transportation planning; thereby, decreasing congestion, conserving open space, creating catalysts for economic development, providing greater mobility, enhancing the sense of community, improving air quality, and helping foster healthier lifestyles. Gruen Associates received the 2009 Comprehensive Planning Award, in the Large Jurisdiction category, from the Inland Empire Section of the American Planning Association and the 2009 Compass Blueprint Excellence Award in Mobility.
