Strategy AC6.2: Implement a variety of transportation solutions that move the region away from heavy reliance on fossil fuels, encourage energy independence, and encourage development in preferred corridors.
There is not a singular solution to solving the region’s energy issues. Incremental initiatives—such as the promotion of alternative fuels, electric vehicle charging stations, and compact development patterns—all work toward a common goal of energy efficiency and sustainability.
