Region Forward is a vision for a more accessible, sustainable, prosperous, and livable National Capital Region. It was developed by the Greater Washington 2050 Coalition, a group of public, private, and civic leaders created by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments in 2008 to help the region meet future challenges like accommodating two million more people by 2050, maintaining aging infrastructure, growing more sustainably, and including all residents in future prosperity.
Region Forward is not a one-size-fits-all vision. It accepts the differences among our cities and counties, but also embraces something that residents of the District of Columbia, suburban Maryland, and Northern Virginia understand. Our futures are interconnected. In 2010, COG and its 21 local governments individually endorsed Region Forward and its Greater Washington 2050 Compact.
