  • Abstract:
    This Report has taken its guidance from a single overriding goal: To recognize the enormous natural, capital, and cultural resources of the Delta, and to enable all of the Delta's citizens to participate as full and successful partners in America's social and economic growth. This Report analyzes an immense number of issues and problems. In this Report, a number of vignettes summarizing success and meaningful action in the Delta serve to demonstrate the strides made and the commitment of the Delta's citizens to their future. These vignettes go into some detail examining specific projects that have proven effective, in order to illustrate the fundamental policy objectives described in condensed form on each issue. The Delta today still faces many challenges-from empowering the economies of the most depressed rural areas and inner city neighborhoods, to enhancing health care and housing for all residents, regardless of racial, ethnic and economic status, to advancing beyond the gradual progress made during the 1990s in such areas as education, transportation, conservation of natural resources, and community development. Through extensive consultations with the people of the Delta as well as with Federal officials, strong support for a regional planning and development organization was evident Most importantly, the focus of this Report is on the Delta's future and harnessing the resources necessary to advance the region's development at this moment in time. 5 Appendices, 205 p.
