Update From The California Center For Regional Leadership

California Center for Regional Leadership

During the next 20 years, California's population will grow by an estimated 12 million people - primarily from births, not immigration - an increase of approximately one-third over the current population of 34 million. The question for civic leaders is how can we accommodate this growth and maintain our quality of life and our economic prosperity? California's Collaborative Regional Initiatives (CRIs) emphasize the idea of sustainable communities and the inter-relationship of economic, social, and environmental issues, and apply this idea to the growth challenges in their regions. As such, CRIs around California are facing up to very important land use challenges and infrastructure deficits in housing, transportation, schools and other essential infrastructure "building blocks." Many are facilitating regional discussion and consensus processes about land use. This issue of CalRegions provides examples of what CRIs are currently doing to face the challenges of land use through "smarter" growth strategies.
