This guide attempts to show ways of using existing assets fully and efficiently and to suggest means of working together to reach more conservative objects. The guide considers trends which are the result of many forces acting in and on the region, and raises the question of whether to accept or resist the trends. Reshaping values and goals is discussed, and the changed base for planning (the slowed population growth and the long-range effects of an altered regional economy should be built into a revised plan) is noted. Six alternate development choices were sketched and examined for impact. The choices and some measures of how each might work are described. The major objectives on which the plan is structured are set forth: conserve critical lands; concentrate development and balance dwellings, jobs and services. Actions associated with carrying out the plan are reviewed. To avoid actions by some that would undermine the objectives of others and to insure that actions mutually support each other, the Tristate Commission will endeavour to evaluate, advise and coordinate relevant land-use and land-use-related actions of governmental jurisdications as wells as those of the private sector. A device called the Project Notification and Review System enables the Commission to guide investments of public funds involving federal assistance. In addition, the annual preparation of the Regional Transportation Improvement Program under the guidance of the Commission may address related land-use issues prior to the review process.
