Getting Regionalism To Work

With the region expecting 1 million new residents by 2020, officials in San Diego are trying once again to improve regional planning efforts.

"San Diego County, already straining with traffic and other growing pains, is projected to get 1 million additional residents by 2020. The county's patchwork of local governments may be incapable -- because of competing interests and limited powers -- of fixing the regional problems that population surges inevitably bring." Historically, "Regionalism" has not been a popular concept in San Diego, but officials are hoping that some progress can be made to improve relations.
