Priorities for a Growing Region: Greater Washington 2050 Survey of Area Residents|
In February 2009, the Greater Washington 2050 Coalition commissioned this public opinion survey to understand residents' priorities and aspirations for the future of the region. The survey reveals area residents' connection to the region and indicates where they want the most emphasis by regional leaders over the coming decades. COG established Greater Washington 2050 to improve the quality of life for Washington area residents in the next 50 years by fostering stronger regional awareness, leadership and action. Led by COG and a coalition of public, business, civic and environmental stakeholders, Greater Washington 2050 will build on what many people now believe is an opportunity for agreement on big issues of growth, transportation and the environment. Greater Washington 2050 will identify specific steps to advance regional goals, assess progress, and measure performance over the coming years.
