Translating Vision to Actions

Scenario Planning Workshops: Translating Our Regional Vision and Values into a Future for Our Region

At the Community Congress events earlier this year, the region weighed in on a draft of Regional Vision and Value statements.

Scenario planning will allow citizens to put those Regional Values into concrete terms and decide where to make investments and what strategies to pursue to get us closer to our shared Regional Vision and Values.

In a series of highly interactive, hands-on workshops, One Region Forward will ask participants to work together mapping their future approach to land use, development, housing and transportation for our region.

Learn more about Scenario Planning and how it will guide the work of One Region Forward.


Register for one of five Community Congress Workshops to be held across the region. 

Kids and family-friendly activities provided by the Healthy Kids, Healthy Communities Partnership of Buffalo.
