Vision and Goals

San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan combines a big picture vision for how our region will grow over the next 35 years with an implementation program to help make that vision a reality. Through a close partnership with all of the region’s cities and the county government, SANDAG has completed an innovative plan for our growing community that provides a vision for the region's future growth and development.

The Plan reflects a strategy for a more sustainable future which includes investing in a transportation network that will provide people more travel choices, protects the environment, creates healthy communities, and stimulates economic growth to benefit all San Diegans. A simple vision lies at the heart of San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan. It was developed using input from you, and adopted by our region’s leaders to guide our Plan’s development. Through a comprehensive survey and public outreach efforts, we asked the community to identify the keys to the region’s future. You told us your priorities are a strong economy, a healthy environment, and a good quality of life for all. 

To achieve that vision, the Plan sets clear goals and
measurable objectives.
