  • New World - New Partnerships
    How Change in California is Evolving City Government’s Scale
    May 2011
  • New Realities of California
    May 2011
    Fiscal Outlook is Bleak
    Budgets are tight
    The state is looking deeper into local government revenues
    Rumblings of realignment are everywhere
    Budget pressure to do more with less
    Demographic Change is Significant
    Population density is on the rise
    CA population is more urban
    Greater economic interdependence (statewide and global)
  • Regional Realities
    May 2011
    The stage that city governments are now asked to perform on is far bigger than their geography, population or budgets.
    Local projects require more capital and resources than individual jurisdictions can support
    Cities need to find scale without loss of individual services
    Many issues cross from one city to the next
  • Historic Big Stage Examples
    May 2011
    Global Commerce and International Goods Shipments
    Devise an efficient method for moving large shipments in and out of Southern California Ports and beyond into the heart of America.
    Water Resources for Economics Growth
    Southern California has faced a water shortage since the early 20th century and as a region used scale to address that concern with the Colorado River Aqueduct and again with the State Water Resources projects.
    California Joint Powers Insurance Authority
    When abandoned by the private market, cities banded together to self-insure and manage risk, but found comfort in scale to overcome risks good management alone could not solve.
  • Future Big Stage Examples
    May 2011
    Communications Network for Cities and County
    The LA-RICS program to consolidate and enable cross jurisdiction communications and enhance emergency response for large scale events.
    Parking Citation Revenue Collection
    Develop a regional approach to enforcement of municipal parking codes through data consolidation and employment of advanced vehicle location technologies.
    Regional Library Authorities
    Cities take ownership of their own libraries and manage a regional contract with a library services provider to manage costs and expand services.
  • Big Stage Problem Characteristics
    May 2011
    Solve something that no individual city can solve on their own.
    Affect multiple cities in a region.
    Show potential to harm cities that at this stage may not be harmed by the problem.
    Typically require large upfront capital expenditures that are tough to overcome, but yield large long term benefits when used on a broad scale
  • A Question of Leadership
    May 2011
    Big stage regional problems create a need for one of two approaches:
    Cities work together to accomplish a shared objective, or
    Someone goes to Sacramento and passes a bill for the State to take over the job.
    Who do you want to take the lead?
  • The Politics of the Regional Approach
    May 2011
    “The new structure needs to provide regulatory, fiscal and other incentives to encourage cooperation among local governments in partnership with the private sector to efficiently and effectively meet regional needs. This strategic alliance should align public efforts with regional economic activity and match the scale of effort to the magnitude of regional challenges.”
  • Political Groundwork for Joint Approaches
    May 2011
    Power Sharing within Regions Requires Focused Consideration of Representation
    Local Elected Officials Must Take the Lead to Bring Parties to the Table to work together to solve common problems and address major issues
    A Sense of Urgency Must be Created Among Stakeholders
    Clear Identification of Costs and Risks Prior to Gaining Commitment is Required.
