Maintain
Suburban Focus
What would the region be like if we continued the development we've had in the last 40 years?
This growth option places most new housing and jobs in large subdivisions or employment centers located outside existing cities and towns, on farmland or open space. Most people need cars to get from their houses to jobs, shopping or recreation.
The “Maintain Suburban Focus” growth option shows how the region might develop if current zoning and land use practices are continued or if community plans are not followed. Most new residents will live in houses on larger lots outside of towns, with fewer condos, townhomes, and apartments available to choose from. Most people will need cars for their daily trips, because home, shopping, work, etc. are not close together. The region's urban areas will provide opportunities for people to use mass transit, walk or bike from homes to nearby work, play, parks, etc. Farms and open space in rural areas will be developed as expanding suburbs. Water, sewer, roads, schools, and other infrastructure will need to be expanded outward to support the new growth.

Follow
Community Plans
This growth option places most new housing and jobs within existing cities and towns, with many parts of the region continuing suburban or rural growth. Limited transit is available in urban areas, while people in rest of the region will rely on cars to meet travel needs.
The “Follow Community Plans” growth option shows how the region might develop if adopted community plans are followed. People in different parts of the region will experience growth in different ways. Residents within some communities will be able to walk, bike, or use transit to get from their homes to work or play, while others will enjoy a more suburban or rural lifestyle, greater distances between home, work and play, and greater reliance on a car. Some communities will shift their infrastructure investment to support "growth within", while other communities will tend to invest more in infrastructure to support "outward growth." Farmland will be preserved in some counties, and housing choices and types will stay about the same as today.

Grow Cities, Towns, Centers and Transit
This growth option places the most growth in existing communities, with more areas where people can walk, bike, or use transit for daily trips. People can still choose from urban, suburban, and rural living. People have options to use transit from the urban area to other towns, and have more local bus service.
The “Grow Cities, Towns, Centers and Transit” Growth Option shows how the region might develop using all the ideas that have emerged from the public throughout CONNECT. People throughout the region have more opportunities to live, work, shop, and play in existing cities or town, or in new activity centers in towns. These centers include parks and greenways, and getting around by walking, biking or transit is easy. Centers along transit corridors are options for those who need to commute by rail from some counties, and other counties have express bus connections. A rural or suburban lifestyle is still available in every county, since land outside centers is open space, farmland, or rural living. Infrastructure investments focus mostly on "growth within," or supporting new centers.

Focus on Regional Transportation
This growth option focuses on public desire to have more regional transit and transportation connections, with new growth centers. People can walk, bike, or take local buses to jobs, housing, shopping, in the centers. They can also choose rural or suburban living, and rely on their own cars, as well.
The “Focus on Regional Transportation” growth option shows how the region might develop based on ideas of people who came to the 57 community growth workshops for CONNECT Our Future, with great interest in transit and transportation. Most new residents will live in the many activity centers in or near existing communities, with housing, work, and shopping options near each other. People are able to walk, bike, or use local bus service or transit to get around. Areas outside centers are preserved as farms or open space in most areas, although there are still many opportunities for suburban or rural living in most counties. Major investment in transit throughout the region means that people can travel between most counties using transit as well as roads, with local bus service available at their destinations. There is limited expansion of water and sewer systems outward, with more focus on supporting "growth within."
