George Washington Regional Commission and FAMPO release another study
The George Washington Regional Commission (GWRC) and the Fredericksburg Area Metropolitian Planning Organization (FAMPO) launched today a study they call “Your Vision, Our Future.”:
This is the region’s first land use scenario study.
This study provides residents, business leaders, and elected officials throughout the George Washington Region the opportunity to explore and debate regional growth visions, their trade-offs and alternative futures. This study is a regional visioning and scenario planning process that will help citizens, businesses, and government officials understand the impacts of growth, especially the relationship between transportation and the social, environmental and economic development. This relationship is a two-way street: growth and development affect transportation performance and transportation affects social, environmental, and economic development. It enables communities and transportation agencies to better prepare for the future.
In September the two entities will be hosting the first round of public workshops to see what the region might look like 25 years from now.
