  • Our community is now our regionCommunity: a group of interacting people living in a common location.We have traded accessibility for mobility.We can now live in one part of the region and work in another.We are economically integrated and compete as a region.Creating abundance requires managing scarcityWe have great natural and built resources.We know from experience what happens if we don’t protect them.Land use is more important than ever before.We have to cultivate our assets and manage our costs.Regional problems need regional solutions.Problem-shifting ALWAYS boomerangs.We are more and more interconnected. Solutions must be comprehensive.
