California's population is projected to reach 50 million between 2025 and
2030, requiring massive infrastructure investment in schools, roads, water
and wastewater systems, etc. There has been little systematic analysis to
estimate the scale of needed investments and to identify options for more
effectively delivering and managing critical state and local services,
infrastructure, and development. How much and what kind of investment is
needed over the next 20 to 25 years, and how can we preserve and protect our
natural resources? Each colloquium has led to valuable discussion among
participants, and we are well on our way to building a community of interest
around California's long-term growth and future quality of life for its
We hope you can attend these sessions. See our website at
