California Regional Progress Report

2010 regional progress report icon

The 2010 California Regional Progress Report presents a framework for measuring sustainability based on twenty integrated, place-based quality-of-life regional indicators. Regional-scale issues such as air quality, housing affordability, vehicle miles traveled and electricity use form the basis for assessing the combined impact of regional outcomes on the state's sustainability.

Data needs are highlighted for important regional-scale indicators that currently lack widespread or accurate measurement, including tracking new development, combined housing and transportation costs, and equity. The report calls for dialogue among state, regional, and local governments to share strategies, address disparities, define sustainability, and improve sustainability measurement.

Report sponsors include Caltrans, The Strategic Growth Council, California Forward, and multiple regional and non-profit partners.
