A coalition of elected officials, environmentalists and developers is announcing its Grow Smart Bay Area initiative this week. We look at expected population growth in the Bay Area, and at how planners hope to accommodate that expansion while also protecting the environment.

Listen to this fascinating discussion about planning a sustainable future for our region. Guests offer their opinions and experience while listeners call in. The dialogue itself highlights the complexities of the issues at hand and illustrates the hurdles planning and smart growth face in real time.
