This report is one of several technical reports prepared as part of Phase I of Region 2040. Phase I aims at describing several concepts for future growth that roughly cover the broad range of ideas articulated by citizens, technicians, and policy makers during the several opportunities for public comment provided in 1992. Phase II, occurring 1993, will evaluate the benefits and costs of these concepts. Based on that evaluation, Metro expects to make decisions in 1994 about whether new policies are needed to achieve the kind of growth the citizens of the region desire.

This report is the final report for Phase I. It draws on data and analyses described in a dozen technical reports prepared for Phase I during 1992. The technical analyses summarized in this report were the basis for a resolution adopted in December 1992 in which the Metro Council described the concepts, and variations on those concepts, that will be evaluated in Phase II.
