Achieving a future that is better than ‘business as usual’ for North Texas
Through Vision North Texas, leaders and experts around the region have worked together to imagine a future that is better than the one predicted by current trends and projections. They have created a vision for a preferred future and a practical set of action steps North Texans can take to achieve this vision.
These important recommendations have been included in “North Texas 2050”, a major new ‘gamebook’ for our region that was released at the Regional Summit 2010. “North Texas 2050” reflects the ideas and recommendations of people who have spent thousands of hours participating in Vision North Texas because they are concerned about the future of our region. Participants from 16 counties, representing many diverse interests, all contributed to this important new vision for our region. In addition, “North Texas 2050” has been shaped by research and the experience of experts in transportation, land use and development, housing, the environment, health and all the other issues that will determine how livable and successful North Texas will be in the coming decades.
Regional Summit 2010 is the culmination of Vision North Texas activities that began with a regional workshop in 2005. At the summit, regional leaders shared their responses to these recommendations and the steps they intend to take so the future depicted in “North Texas 2050” will become a reality. Participants contributed their own perspectives and designed their own strategies for a future that is better than ‘business as usual’.
