Dear SPUR members and friends,
If you haven't already signed up, I'd like to invite you to our next Citizen
Planning Institute, on Regional Governance. In our increasingly
interconnected world, local governments share many common
responsibilities--and burdens. Local governments and subregional agencies
struggle to find ways to cooperate on such issues as housing, land use, and
transportation, but lack the institutional arrangements to do so
effectively. The topic sparks endlessly fascinating (and often contentious)
debate on potential forms and powers. We will discuss many possible
solutions in our day-long CPI that promote cooperation and accountability
among localities, including regional governance and state oversight. Join us
and hear transportation, government, and regional planning experts discuss
leading ideas--and proven solutions--to these issues.
Guest Speakers will include David Bragdon, President of Portland Metro, one
of the most successful regional government efforts in the United States. He
will describe the keys to success and the ongoing challenges of Oregon's
efforts. We'll also hear from Bay Area experts on regional government,
� Joe Bodovitz, former director, Bay Vision 2020
� Mark DeSaulnier, Contra Costa County Supervisor; Association of Bay
Area Governments (ABAG) and Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC)
� Paul Fassinger, Demographer, ABAG
� Steve Heminger, Executive Director, MTC
� Tom Jones, Executive Director, California Futures Network
� Gene Leong, Executive Director, ABAG
