In my APES class we are doing a Sustainable City Design Project. Should we choose a city in California?
Apparently choosing the location is a critical part of this project and it should be researched in-depth. This city has to provide everything you can think of for a population of 50,000 and have an industry as well as housing, food, water, transportation, jobs, an education system, waste management, etc. My teacher said it would be stupid to choose a place like Miami or Buffalo because of the climates. So, what would be a wise place to choose? We were thinking California. Maybe Malibu or a little more north like Santa Barbara. Any suggestions?

Sounds like you should choose a city close to a jungle.

In an imaginary city in a different country on another planet. It is, after all, an imaginary city you are designing.

I think Portland, Oregon has the best green sustainable city planning. Forget California. No city fits your requirements.
