PSG's Blueprint for a Better Region
PSG’s Blueprint for a Better Region outlines a vision: if we advance sustainable development patterns and promote sustainable transportation, our communities will thrive.
Our goal is to improve transportation and land use policies throughout the region, as well as regional cooperation and public involvement in the planning process, to promote smarter growth and sustainable transportation. The benefits of these changes include strengthening our communities, increasing economic competitiveness, saving money on public infrastructure and in household budgets, improving air and water quality, providing affordable housing, promoting agriculture, improving public health, reducing traffic congestion, protecting natural and historic resources, and providing easier access to jobs.
