Envision 2050

The Envision 2050 project will engage the San Joaquin region in a scenario planning effort that embraces future uncertainty from outside forces such as climate impacts, housing affordability, autonomous vehicles, and others. The project will frame a new conversation on how uncertainty and outside forces will stress the regional transportation system and what the region should do to prepare. The Envision 2050 project will: 

  • Define foundational pillars from which the region will build its Sustainable Communities Strategy; 
  • Envision three distinct future scenarios and test a wide range of policy and investments strategies to understand how they perform under each future scenario; and 
  • Engage stakeholders and the public to provide input on how best to prepare the region for the future.

SJCOG intends to work in coordination with its local and regional partners to implement the planning activities included in this project scope. The Envision 2050 project activities will incorporate sustainability, innovation, and economy, through a novel approach to scenario planning.
