'Temporary Paradise?' Then and Now

This 1974 'Regional Reconnaissance' created by Kevin Lynch and Donald Appleyard represents the first "sustainability" planning document for our region. It encouraged us in beautiful prose and depictions to preserve our natural resources, integrate our environmental and geophysical attributes into regional planning, and develop the bi-national economic and cultural assets inherent in our region - all tenets of sustainability today.

This spring, C-3 re-introduces this document by presenting our commemorative reprinting featuring contemporary essays by locally recognized planners.  

Join us for this dialogue highlighting the original document's origin and significance along with its timeless relevance to our regional planning efforts today.
