New California-based nonprofit Partnership for Sustainable Communities (PSC) is offering developers, planners, and architects a free 30-page report on the state of the art in sustainable community planning and development.

The report, Beyond Green Building: How to Get Deals Done in the New Era of Sustainable Community Planning and Development, was prepared by PSC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting land-use reform, including higher-density zoning, infill development, and measures to encourage affordable housing.

PSC was founded and is directed by Andre Shashaty, founder of Affordable Housing Finance magazine, and helps developers and architects work with cities to enact progressive policies and smooth the entitlement process for affordable housing and mixed-use projects.
