ON TO 2050 indicators help measure the progress of plan implementation.
Where possible, each ON TO 2050 recommendation is tracked by one or more indicators to set targets and monitor progress. Because changes to patterns of development or mobility take time, the plan designates targets for both 2025 and 2050. Most important, these targets are not simple forecasts of current trends; they instead represent optimistic, but achievable, outcomes that assume the implementation of ON TO 2050. To provide consistency over time, many indicators have been carried forward from GO TO 2040, the predecessor to this plan, with some improved data sources or analytical approaches.
On October 12, 2022, the CMAP Board and MPO Policy Committee approved an update to the ON TO 2050 long-range plan, including an updated indicators appendix. View all the updated appendices.
