Metro Vision 2035

For nearly two decades, since the adoption of the Metro Vision Guiding Vision , Metro Vision has served as the foundation for an ongoing conversation about how best to protect the quality of life that makes our region such a great place to live, work, play and raise families.

Metro Vision 2035 was first adopted by the Board in 2007. In early 2009, the DRCOG Board expressed interest in incorporating sustainability into Metro Vision through measurable goals. Between 2009 and November 2010, sustainability goals were discussed and refined. In addition to regular meetings of the DRCOG Board, Metro Vision Issues Committee and the TIP Policy Working Group, DRCOG conducted two Sustainability Cafe Workshops and four Idea Exchanges to explore the concept further.

In February 2011, the DRCOG Board adopted an updated Metro Vision, adding sustainability goals.
