Background & History

Throughout the multi-year PLAN 2040 development process, information was provided to local government officials and to the public that, while still relevant to the plan, is no longer timely. Much of that information can be found on this page.

ARC's Tom Weyandt discusses the basics of regional
planning and PLAN 2040.
