Amanda Brown-Stevens

Greenbelt Alliance CEO Amanda Brown-Stevens is a nationally recognized expert in climate-smart development and resilient communities. Her strategic vision for Greenbelt Alliance and the Bay Area as a whole are informed by her decades of experience in advocating for well-planned cities and towns and the protection of our region’s iconic greenbelt lands. Prior to rejoining Greenbelt Alliance, Amanda oversaw Resilient by Design—a collaborative design challenge that brought together local residents, public officials, and international design experts to develop innovative, community-based solutions to strengthen the Bay Area’s resilience to sea level rise. Previous to that effort, Amanda worked to pass public finance ballot measures including funding to permanently preserve iconic landscapes around the region, restore essential habitat for fish and wildlife, and increase public access to open space for the Bay Area’s growing population.
