Northeast Megaregion 2050: A Common Future

A new report by RPA warns that the
future of the Tri-State Region is intertwined with that of the
Northeast Megaregion, the string of metropolitan areas stretching from
Boston to Washington. That future is threatened by lagging job growth,
rising housing costs, increasing air and road congestion, and threats
to our environment and quality of life. The report recommends governing
alliances to address mobility, carbon emissions, sprawl and
environmental protection. With the proper investments and concerted
action, the Northeast Megaregion can turn its incredible concentration
of people, skills and transportation infrastructure into a strategic
advantage in an era of climate change and oil uncertainty.
