Communities in Motion 2040 Vision -- What does it mean to you?19-Apr-2013
COMPASS is pleased to announce the release of the Communities in Motion 2040 Vision – a depiction of Ada and Canyon Counties in the year 2040. The vision will be used as the basis for Communities in Motion 2040, the next regional long-range transportation plan for the two-county area, and will guide future transportation investments. View the vision map here: http://www.compassidaho.org/documents/prodserv/CIM2040/Map_Final.pdf.
The vision was developed by Treasure Valley residents and elected officials through an intensive process involving hundreds of stakeholders over more than a year. It accommodates a two-county population in 2040 of 1,022,000 (422,000 more than today) and 463,000 jobs (187,000 more than today).
The vision depicts where growth would occur and what types of housing and jobs would be associated with that growth. Accompanying the vision map are sketches and descriptions to help users picture what the types of growth shown on the map might look like.
Now it’s your turn. Tell us how you view that vision by submitting your photos in the “Your Treasure Valley Future: Photo Challenge.” Photos can be of places, things, or ideals that you’d like to see carried into the year 2040, or even changed for the better. We’ll post them on our web and Facebook pages, use some of them to illustrate the Communities in Motion 2040 regional long-range transportation plan for Ada and Canyon Counties, and display some of them at the COMPASS office and at outreach events…and you’ll get the credit. Photos will be accepted through November 30, 2013.
You can find more information in the attached flier, then go online to submit your photos: www.compassidaho.org/prodserv/cim2040_photochallenge.htm.
