WHAT IS VISION CALIFORNIA?
California must plan for future growth – by 2050, the state’s population is expected to grow to nearly 60 million people and 24 million jobs*. The path that we take to accommodate growth can lead us in many directions. Vision California provides the information we need to make informed decisions about how and where we want to grow.
The Vision California project, funded by the California High Speed Rail Authority in partnership with the Strategic Growth Council, is developing two new modeling tools – the “Urban Footprint” map-based model and the “Rapid Fire” spreadsheet-based tool – to formulate and compare scenarios for how California can accommodate growth. By clearly expressing the consequences of different growth scenarios, Vision California can inform the decisions that will drive California’s infrastructure investments.
