- REGION FORWARD – Greater Washington 2050: COG’s Vision for the National Capital Region in the Twenty-First Century
- The Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG) Board of Directors voted unanimously on October 14 to approve REGION FORWARD for public release and comment.
- Comments are requested in writing or online by November 30, 2009. All comments will be examined by the Greater Washington 2050 Coalition in December prior to final action by the COG Board in January. In commenting on the draft report and recommendations, public officials, representatives of stakeholder organizations and individuals are asked to consider:
- Are these the right nine goals and can you suggest any broad, overarching goals that are equally critical to our region’s vitality and future?
- Will the proposed targets and indicators help track progress in meeting goals? Are other regions using more precise targets and indicators to evaluate if their communities are making progress on these tough, inter-jurisdictional issues?
- Should COG conduct a baseline analysis on targets and indicators in early 2010 and periodically thereafter publish update reports to track progress?
- Should COG survey the public on these and related issues to see if the communities we serve believe progress on targets is actually improving the quality of life in the National Capital Region?
- Should COG couple this work with more outreach and training for local governments to promote best practices and new tools that will help achieve goals?
- How can COG and its partner stakeholders provide greater accountability and transparency in this process in the future?
- There are two ways to comment by November 30, 2009. Also, please contact Steve Kania at 202-962-3249 at COG if you would like someone from COG and the Coalition to make a presentation on the REGION FORWARD report.
- Review the draft REGION FORWARD report, which is available online at www.greaterwashington2050.org. The website also has a link to the comments page.
- COG welcomes written comments or suggestions to: 2050 Comments, MWCOG, 777 North Capitol Street NE, Suite 300, Washington, DC 20002.
- The report and a solicitation for comments will be mailed or emailed this week to a very wide-range of organizations and individuals (the solicitation was sent to all COG member governments October 16). COG is also scheduling interviews or other media opportunities to draw public and stakeholder interest to this effort, as well as using blogs and other social networking sites to create “buzz”.
- Bottom line, Coalition help is requested to get the word out about REGION FORWARD so that the Coalition members have lots of input to consider when they meet again on December 12 to review comments and approve a final draft for COG Board action in January.
- If you have questions or suggestions about the outreach phase of the Coalition’s work, please contact Paul DesJardin at 202-962-3293.
- Next membership meeting planned for 18 November 2009
