The Future of California Land Use and Transportation Investments

Joe DiStefano, principal of Calthorpe Associates, will give an overview of Vision California. Vision California is an unprecedented effort to explore the critical role of land use and transportation investments in meeting the environmental and fiscal challenges facing the Golden State over the coming decades. It will produce a series of alternative physical visions for how California can accommodate expected growth, and clearly express the consequences of these options so that we can make informed decisions about the investments and policies that will drive the state's growth.

Eric Fredericks from California High-Speed Rail Authority will give an update of current high-speed rail statewide planning efforts. The overview will also focus on the Altamont Corridor Rail Partnership, which is looking to establish high-speed regional rail in the corridor.
