Guiding principles that ACTION will use to develop a metropolitan equity plan:
Provide incentives for communities to work together on, and share the benefits of, economic development that advances our region.Eliminate the motive for local jurisdictions to compete with one another for development that would likely occur in the region anyway.Provide a resource-sharing mechanism that will help poor taxing districts improve conditions that hamper regional efforts to attract world-class business development.Create a framework in which communities can participate in sound and timely decisions concerning issues of regional significance.Provide incentives for orderly and efficient development patterns that conserve resources and preserve open space and farm land.Work to eliminate fundamental injustices inherent in a system that perpetuates unequal opportunity based solely on place of residence.Place our region on the cutting edge of new statewide public policy.
