Heal the Bay is looking for a part-time Economist to support our Living Streets Project. The goal of the Living Streets Project is to change the way the City of Los Angeles uses its streets. Historically, city streets were planned and built to support the automobile. To help the city make the shift, we are facilitating a change in practice and policy by researching, compiling and analyzing regionally applicable cost/benefit data. The Economist will assess the benefits and costs of Complete Streets, Green Infrastructure and Cool Streets. The analysis will focus on climate change impacts, as well as other environmental, health and job benefits. The Living Streets Project is in collaboration with the California Coastal Conservancy, Climate Resolve and Green LA.
