The One Valley, One Vision 2040 Regional Plan is advisory and looks at growth from various perspectives beyond any one political district or authority. It addresses issues in much the same way local comprehensive plans do, but from a broader perspective. It establishes basic guidelines regarding plans and development and helps to attain consistency. The plan was created recognizing a balance exists between the interests of the public and those of private property owners, and seeks to respect private property rights, due process, and just compensation.
The regional plan covers a range of resource topics that closely match those indentified in the local existing comprehensive plans. The resource topics covered are: Land Use, Water, Air Quality, Environmental Resources, Hazards, Transportation, Community Facilities and Services, Utilities & Infrastructure, Housing, Economy, Community Character, Design, and Historic Preservation, and Intergovernmental Cooperation.
The main components of the plan includes a regional vision statement, snapshot of existing conditions, goals and strategies, regional growth strategies that shaped a consensus housing and jobs strategy, and suggested implementation actions to take within the next five years.
