The City of Sunnyvale is re-zoning the Moffett Park district with the goal of creating a complete live-work community and ecological innovation district. We draw on the science-based Urban Biodiversity Framework to develop technical specifications, specific guidance, clear graphic representations, and rationale for an urban biodiversity strategy for this part of the city. This approach will provide a new level of vision and guidance for the SF Bay Area of how to incorporate a network of high-performance nature to deliver benefits to health, resilience, outdoor experience, and sense of place. In this project SFEI is part of a team producing the new Specific Plan, led by Raimi and Associates.
