Welcome to CMAP's exploration of scenarios, or alternative directions for our region's future. We used these alternative scenarios, along with past public input to create a draft preferred scenario that is available for review - a document that helped formulate ideas for the final GO TO 2040 plan.
The information on this website builds on the MetroQuest "Invent the Future" interactive software, which you can explore for educational purposes. This website presents policy and investment choices that make up each alternative scenario, impacts of each scenario on key indicators, and illustrations of how the alternative scenarios might affect some sample communities around the region. Learn more about how you can stay involved with GO TO 2040 here.
Below are some commonly asked questions and answers about the scenario evaluation process.
