2016 Consensus Forecast:
Every two years, the RPC reviews the Consensus Forecast (CF) for our region.  This document is prepared by TMRPA and is used by various public agencies for planning efforts throughout our community.  For example, the Regional Transportation Commission uses the CF to model traffic demand, the Western Regional Water Commission uses the forecast to inform water and wastewater planning, and the jurisdictions use it in their master planning efforts.

This document forecasts growth over a 20 year horizon, and in the 2016 Consensus Forecast, TMRPA projects roughly 100,000 new residents and 75,000 new jobs in our region by 2036.  This item is scheduled to be heard by the RPC at their Wednesday, September 28, 2016 meeting.

The Draft Regional Housing Study Results were presented to the Regional Planning Governing Board (RPGB) at their September 15, 2016 meeting. The study includes the use of two growth scenarios to envision potential futures for our region, and discusses some of the regional costs associated with these possibilities. The RPGB unanimously accepted the study, and staff will complete the final report for release in early November 2016.
