The Rest of the Team

Hayley Cox


Hayley has a range of academic, policy, and project experience in land use planning and environmental review. Her recent project responsibilities include authoring environmental review documents; performing research to inform strategy for property development and to ensure entitlement compliance; and preparing contract planning documents, including staff reports, zoning compliance memoranda and conditions of approval. Hayley recently authored several strategic CEQA memoranda for the projects in the cities of Oakland and South San Francisco; prepared land use evaluations of potential surplus properties owned by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission; and performed contract planning services for the City of Berkeley. She is currently managing the preparation of environmental review documents for the cities of Oakland and Emeryville, and is updating the Town of Truckee’s Railyard Master Plan and completing associated applications required for the approval of the first development in the Railyard.

Hayley’s past work includes research, writing, policy analysis, and community outreach. As an intern at Greenbelt Alliance, she conducted policy research and drafted a variety of written tools for Bay Area planning projects. Her academic career was similarly focused on environmental planning, law, and impact analysis, and included the preparation of an undergraduate thesis on the implementation of SB 375 and Sustainable Communities Strategies in California.
