How were the results of the neighborhood Blueprint workshops used in developing the alternative countywide scenarios?
At the end of the neighborhood workshop series, the region’s residents had created approximately 250 planning scenarios for about 60 infill and Greenfield study areas, ranging in size from nine acres to 1,500 acres (average of about 200 acres). The neighborhood plans were being evaluated and summarized. The results were used in the alternative countywide scenarios, both for the parcels within the study areas, and for other areas in the county that share similar characteristics. However, many decisions needed to be made in building the countywide scenarios that extended beyond the geography and issues that were explored in the neighborhood workshops. The local government planners provided essential input to SACOG staff in determining how to address these issues in the various scenarios.
