PennDesign Central Florida: Our Region in the Year 2050

PennDesign Central Florida: Our Region in the Year 2050

The Metropolitan Center for Regional Studies


What will the Florida experience be like for our children?

Will they be trapped on congested highways; struggling to afford a home; mourning the loss of natural woods and waters?

Or can we create a future in which a balanced transportation system serves the needs of one of the country's most prosperous regions; natural beauty beckons our residents outdoors; a global economy brings visitors from around the world to enjoy our attractions and unique environment and to do business?

The University of Pennsylvania wants to help us plan this future!

Professor Jonathan Barnett, a world-renowned urbanist, and the graduate students of the Department of City and Regional Planning, will present the initial findings of PennDesign Central Florida, a look ahead to the years 2025 and 2050 for our seven county region.

We're asking you to join us in hearing about their work to date, offering input and ideas, and making certain they capture the elements we value most. Their final report will come in June 2005.

Please join us in this important work!

Linda W. Chapin, Director
The Metropolitan Center for Regional Studies at the University of Central Florida
