SEWRPC LAUNCHES VISION 2050!
PLEASE JOIN US IN SHAPING THE FUTURE OF LAND USE AND TRANSPORTATION IN SOUTHEASTERN WISCONSIN
The Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission is launching VISION 2050, an effort to create a long-range vision for land use and transportation in the seven-county Southeastern Wisconsin Region. Your input will play a large role in shaping this vision—a vision that will be reflected in a new year 2050 regional land use andtransportation plan for Southeastern Wisconsin. The year 2050 plan will represent a major update of the year 2035 plans prepared by the Commission in 2006.
The vision developed during VISION 2050 will describe how residents want their communities and the Region to develop, and how they want to be connected to the places where they live, work, and play.
Feedback from the initial visioning activities described in this brochure will lead into examining possible scenarios of how the Region might look and function in the future. The scenarios will be refined and used to create more detailed alternative plans, representing alternative visions. The alternative plans will be evaluated based on how well they achieve the goals and objectives identified in the initial visioning activities. Region residents will then be able to help identify a preferred vision to be reflected in the final year 2050 plan. The final plan will serve as a guide for land use and transportation decisions at the local, county, and State levels for years to come.
WE NEED YOUR INPUT!
The visioning activities that will kick off VISION 2050 will involve a great deal of public participation—that means you! Our approach for these initial visioning activities is simple:
1. We will listen to what you think is important; and
2. We will attempt to translate your ideas into an initial land use and transportation vision for Southeastern Wisconsin.
The visioning activities will begin with seven Visioning Workshops in October that anyone can attend.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO PARTICIPATE?
The goal for VISION 2050 is to create a better understanding of the consequences of different land use and transportation choices, and ultimately increase awareness and support of the final recommended plan. Maximum participation will be key!
