The Fourth Regional Plan: Making the Region Work for All of Us


The Fourth Regional Plan: Making the Region Work for All of Us


Our work on the Fourth Regional Plan began by talking with and listening to people from across the region. What we
heard was that people loved living here, but also had some serious concerns. Housing was too expensive. Commutes were long and unreliable. The destruction brought by Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy underscored our region’s vulnerability to climate change, and raised questions about how prepared we were for the storms to come. But the most distressing thing we heard was that many people believed these and other problems were just too big to solve. We have spent the past five years engaged in more discussions and countless hours of research and analysis to better understand these challenges, and to find solutions.
