The purpose of this phase was to transform the values and vision developed in
Phase 1 into a set of growth principles and benchmarks that could be used to evaluate the effectiveness of alternative growth scenarios in Phase 3. While the Valley COGs were developing goals, objectives, and performance measures, they also held workshops with resource agencies, environmental justice organizations, and tribal governments. The goals, objectives, and performance measures continued to evolve throughout the Blueprint process. By the time the Blueprint was adopted in 2009, the Valley COGs had developed common goals, objectives, and performance measures that would work in each of the counties and be consistent Valleywide.
