Efficiency and Effectiveness
Goals, Recommendations and Action Steps:
Note: several of the other Efficiency and Effectiveness Recommendations & Action Steps are being forwarded by the other theme areas, ie housing, transportation.
Tighter resources; efficiency and effectiveness: Both public and private institutions are trying to do more with fewer resources. Solutions to our region’s issues must be innovative, not dependent on increased spending from traditional sources.
Efficiency and Effectiveness Goal
Growth patterns: 12,000 new homes across the region from a population increase of 8% with an average household size of 2.4 persons. People retire here and want to live near amenities so there is moderate lake shore development. There is an increase in affordable housing and jobs so young people return. People live near jobs so big towns grow some and small towns hold steady.
