CCRL is working with several state agencies and initiatives to help them to craft an appropriate role that builds on "state-of-the-art" economic development practices, and create new partnerships based on the idea that economic performance is a shared responsibility.
Better Planning for Growth in California
CCRL engages regional leaders, the Legislature, and state agencies in moving forward a unified set of land-use and infrastructure goals for the state government that are aligned with regional needs.
Ten : State Budget Education and Action
The Next Ten project seeks to move the public conversation about the budget beyond the short-term crisis debate, and to a long-term discussion of our desired future.
The California Policy Reform Network, or CPRN, is a civic partnership advancing state policy reforms by informing and engaging California's civic leaders from all walks of life on fundamental state policy reform issues. Currently, CPRN focuses on three policy areas: state budget priorities and planning (the Next Ten project); growth planning and growth management; and infrastructure planning and financing.
Speaker's Commission on Regionalism
Speaker Emeritus of the California Assembly Bob Hertzberg convened this commission, chaired by CCRL President Nick Bollman, to examine some of California's most serious immediate and long-term issues. The commission's final report, issued in January 2002, presents a policy framework and specific recommendations for more effective solutions at a regional scale and tailored to the unique needs of the state's diverse regions.
