Happening Now: Strategies Workshops

At the heart of a long-range plan is a broadly shared vision for where we collectively want the region to be in 30 years, which is generated through wide and far-reaching public input. The Connections 2050 vision is:
An equitable, resilient, and sustainable Greater Philadelphia region that:
- Preserves and protects the natural environment.
- Develops inclusive, healthy, and walkable communities.
- Grows a prosperous and innovative economy.
