San Diego could be a model for “low impact developments” that would reduce pollution, planners said at a San Diego Coastkeeper forum Thursday.

 

“A living building produces all its energy from renewable sources and captures and treats all its own water, while operating with “maximum beauty,” Thiele said.”

 

“A living neighborhood employs those principles on a large scale. Thiele even envisions “eco-districts” which spread the concept among the city’s council districts.”
