We really need to create a vision for the future that people can believe in... If [infilll development] is done right, [it] can actually enhance our communities and not detract from them.
As the Executive Director of TransForm, Stuart Cohen has become a powerful and effective voice for world class transit and walkable communities in the Bay Area and beyond. TransForm's campaigns on transportation sales taxes and other funding measures have brought together diverse coalitions and helped raise over $8 billion for sustainable and socially-just transportation. Cohen has spearheaded a number of these efforts, as well as the successful effort to initiate the Bay Area's Regional Smart Growth Strategy.
Cohen has been the primary author of ten TransForm reports. He received a master's degree in Public Policy from the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley.
