Third Annual

Leonard Transportation Center Forum


Greener California: Impacts of Senate Bill 375 and

Winning Strategies for Southern California


The Leonard Transportation Center invites you to a regional dialogue to discuss the transportation, land use and city planning, and policy impacts and winning adaptive strategies of California’s newly adopted climate change legislation, SB 375.


The newly adopted legislation requires regional government planning groups to integrate global warming their ongoing planning work. The bill alters decades of practice in land use planning, transportation funding, and CEQA law, all in an effort to get Californians to drive fewer miles in order to prevent commuters from overshadowing other greenhouse gas reduction programs.


This conference focuses on how SB 375 will alter regional planning and transportation programs and how municipalities can adapt to the new law and emerge as winners in meeting and exceeding the goals set forth in SB 375.


Who should attend?

The forum is an informative opportunity for city-planners and public works directors; traffic, transit, land use and environmental consultants; transportation planners; Rideshare, and other alternative mode specialists; developers and land owners; and employers responsible for shifting commute patterns.


Cost:  $65.00 Free

Keynote Speakers:


William Fulton

A journalist, urban planner, researcher, pundit, and best-selling author ­ and now a practicing elected official as deputy mayor of the Ventura (Calif.) City Council ­ William Fulton has played a key role in re-shaping the way urban and metropolitan growth issues are debated in the post-suburban era. He is a principal in the California-based urban planning firm of Design, Community & Environment (, and a senior scholar at the School of Policy, Planning, and Development at the University of Southern California. He is the author of three books considered classics in their field. The Reluctant Metropolis: The Politics of Urban Growth in Los Angeles, an L.A. Times best-seller, uses novelistic storytelling techniques to trace the way a leading metropolis grew and developed. The Regional City: Planning for the End of Sprawl, co-authored with architect Peter Calthorpe, is a pathbreaking work that has reshaped understanding of how metropolitan regions should be planned and designed. More than a decade after its original publication, Guide to California Planning remains the standard textbook for urban planning classes.


In partnership with the Smart Growth Leadership Institute, Fulton has assisted communities from Florida to Alaska in implementing “smart growth policies” and as an elected official he has taken a leadership role in doing the same in Ventura.


Fulton has also been active in the economic development arena as well. He is the economic development columnist for Governing magazine and has worked on a series of economic development strategies for communities across the country, focusing on Arizona and Upstate New York.



Robert A. Wolf has been a driving force in business, government and politics in Riverside County and Inland Southern California for more than 35 years. As Germania Corporation’s president emeritus, Mr. Wolf continues to use the knowledge and experience gained through the decades to help many of the company’s client’s work through their most complicated development and transportation challenges. Mr. Wolf is a recognized expert in the fields of property development, transportation planning, and infrastructure development. Starting at Germania Construction in 1970, he has helped to develop the Inland area’s economy and raise the region’s profile around Southern California and the state. Robert A. Wolf is an Advisory Board Member for the Leonard Transportation Center



William Hudnut

Former four-term Mayor of Indianapolis and Congressman, author, public speaker, TV commentator, think tank fellow, elected official, and clergyman, Bill Hudnut currently occupies the Urban Land Institute/Joseph C. Canizaro Chair for Public Policy at the Urban Land Institute in Washington, DC, a non-profit Washington-based organization dedicated to promoting quality land use and influencing public policy through research and education.


Hudnut is probably best known for his sixteen-year tenure as Mayor of Indianapolis, 1976-1991, during which he advanced the city’s new “Unigov” form of merged governance with Marion County. His stated goal was to build a “cooperative, compassionate and competitive” city. He established “a national reputation for revitalizing his Midwestern city,” (The Washington Post) and came to be regarded as “an entrepreneurial leader willing to take prudent risks” (The Toledo Blade). He spearheaded the formation of a public-private sector partnership that led to Indianapolis’ emergence during the 1980s as a major American city. A past president of the National League of Cities, Hudnut helped Indianapolis record spectacular growth during his sixteen years in office


A much sought-after speaker, “spirited…with high energy eloquence,” (The Toledo Blade) Hudnut “gives life to the word charismatic” (The Cincinnati Enquirer). He is the author of Minister Mayor (1987), a book reflecting on his experience in politics and religion; The Hudnut Years in Indianapolis, 1976-1991 (1995), a case study in urban management and leadership; Cities on the Rebound (1998), an analysis of clues to the successful city of the future; and Halfway to Everywhere (2003), a portrait of America‘s first tier suburbs. His latest book, published in 2008: Changing Metropolitan America: Planning for A Sustainable Future (ULI Press, 2008).
