North State Super Region White Paper
The North State Super Region
Infrastructure investment and transportation funding are identified as some of the most difficult policy issues facing California today. New funding for transportation is focused on portions of the state with the most population and economic vitality. Therefore, rural counties struggle to fund necessary transportation improvements in economically depressed and often geographically challenging areas. Rural local governments lack funding for basic requirements, and while transportation is important, it doesn't always fare well.
Through the creation of an alliance, North State counties have joined together to communicate their needs and direct change. These groups share similar issues, such as transportation needs, population growth, and land use changes affecting sensitive habitats."
