SANBAG Presents the Big Picture

5_28_10_slide.jpgSlide 10

At its May 12, 210 meeting the Board of the San Bernardino Associated
Governments (a Council of Gvernments/planning entity) viewed a
remarkable power point presentation its staff had prepared. In just 34
pages it gives policymakers a peek at the yawning challenges facing our
region. It doesn’t offer any solutions but at least gives a fair
picture of the magnitude of the problems. Which is a starting point for
engaged and informed discussion.

I stumbled across mention of this remarkable document while flipping
though the SANBAG agenda and felt it deserves more attention than I
fear it has received heretofore. Because we all have a role to play in
shaping the future.
