Central Texas is a special place and we continue to grow. Tracking and shaping for the better how growth affects our quality of life, the education of our children, the environment around, above, and below us, the strength of our economy, the affordability of our communities, and our commitment to those with the least among us is our challenge.
Providing indicators on where we stand today and the trends that got us here is our role in addressing this challenge. Your role as a citizen of Central Texas is to understand and use these indicators to improve those trends that are worsening, reinforce the positive trends and strengths of our region, and participate in steering the region away from emerging conflicts and detrimental trends.
Our region is incredibly diverse - integrating solid data and indicators with honest passion and values lets us create a clear picture of our region and our progress toward sustainability.
