VISION 2050 Planning

The board received an overview of VISION 2050, including the project schedule and work tasks. Board members provided feedback to guide development of the scope of work.

VISION 2050 will take into account many changes since VISION was last adopted in 2008, including recent fast paced population and job growth, new forecasts to 2050, major commitments to building transportation infrastructure, and lessons learned from VISION 2040.

The VISION 2050 project will start with formal scoping in early 2018, followed by research, development of plan alternatives, revised policies and actions, and environmental analysis. Adoption of VISION 2050 by the PSRC General Assembly is scheduled for spring 2020.
