The Growth Management Council presents this report and recommendations for review and comment. Our vision of California is as America's leader, economically, environmentally, and socially, and as a model for the world. California is unique in its resources, its diversity, its energy, and its complexity. But we find ourselves now at a crossroads. We must manage and direct the growth and change which is an inevitable part of California's future, just as it has been in the past. We must direct strategic growth as a vehicle to rebuild prosperity and infrastructure, create jobs and stimulate both sustained and sustainable growth in the economy, preserve the quality oflife, and plan for the future in a way that maximizes the best use of both our human and natural resources.
This report is submitted pursuant to Executive Order W-2-91 dated January 22, 1991.
