That Mayor Cohen is one of 514 signatories (to-date) of the US Mayors Climate Protection Agreement (PDF).
Among the provisions of the agreement, signing mayors strive to:
2. Adopt and enforce land-use policies that reduce
sprawl, preserve open space, and create compact,
walkable urban communities;
3. Promote transportation options such as bicycle
trails, commute trip reduction programs,
incentives for car pooling and public transit;
Those are values we can all support.
