Since its inception, the Foundation has sponsored or conducted several studies on conditions for economic growth in California. The Foundation's studies range from a discussion of the issues pertaining to land use and development to identifying those opinion leaders whose ideas about economic growth, including issues of land use and development, have been instrumental in framing the public debate.
Working to Protect our Environment
On the environmental front, the Foundation has taken the lead by holding a series of successful conferences on the current and future status of California landfills and their potential impacts on surrounding ecosystems. The Foundation hosted a conference at the Racquet Club of Palm Springs that featured an impressive gathering of scientists, engineers, waste management industry leaders and environmental experts to determine the long-term needs of the state’s existing and future landfills.
