LA County’s First Regional Sustainability Plan: CSO Gary Gero Highlights Its Ambitions

When Gary Gero was appointed Los Angeles County’s first ever Chief Sustainability Officer in 2017, he took on the hefty task of developing a comprehensive plan to drive the region’s 88 cities toward a clean and equitable economy. Now, a draft of that plan has been released as OurCountyLA—an ambitious document that integrates energy, water, transportation, urban development, technology, and jobs into one bold vision for the future of Los Angeles County. Gero joins TPR to highlight the steps needed to reach carbon neutrality, build half a million affordable housing units, and achieve even more aggressive goals by 2050.
