Regional Blueprints

Regional Blueprints are a process and set of policy statements designed to help cities and counties plan for future growth and quality of life through the integration of transportation, housing, land use, economic development and environmental protection.

Through a visioning process that depends heavily on public input, residents and community leaders are encouraged to develop value statements and planning goals that acknowledge ongoing population growth and resource parameters, such as water availability; air quality; open space preservation and others.

It is not meant to supersede local jurisdictions’ land use authority.Elected officials from each city and county throughout the valley will determine how their jurisdictions will accommodate the regional vision, such as integrating them directly into their General Plans through definitive policy statements.

The final product includes a visual representation of the goals expressed in general plans and Regional Transportation Plans.
