What Lies Ahead for Inland Southern California Counties?
April 24, 2014
Gregory C. Devereaux, (right), Chief Executive Officer for the County San Bernardino; and Jay E. Orr, Executive Officer for the County of Riverside, shared their views on what the counties should do to frame a vision for the future at the April Randall Lewis Seminar.
The seminar was one of several in this year's series that are focusing on the theme, “Envisioning a Future for Inland Southern California.”
The Center for Sustainable Suburban Development at UCR, which hosts the seminar series, has been inviting a diverse group of community leaders and citizens – including elected officials, education leaders, major employers and heads of civic and environmental organizations – to take stock in the region’s assets, design plans to enhance those assets, and work together as a region for mutual benefit.
A growing number of leaders in U.S. cities and suburbs are working together to develop their communities into economic powerhouses and raise the quality of life in their regions. These leaders are capitalizing on their region’s distinctive assets – such as their natural surroundings, history, business strengths and educational institutions – and collaborating to improve their communities from within.
The concept is gaining momentum, in part because of the writings of planning and land use analyst Ed McMahon, Senior Resident Fellow at the Urban Land Institute; and Bruce Katz and Jennifer Bradley of the Brookings Institution, authors of the book, “The Metropolitan Revolution: How Cities an Metros are Fixing Our Broken Politics and Fragile Economy.”
