Smart Valley Places

A Roadmap to Transformation

Smart Valley Places is coordinated by the California Partnership for the San Joaquin Valley (Partnership) and driven by a compact of 14 Valley cities from throughout the eight-county region, in partnership with four regional nonprofit organizations, California State University, Fresno, the San Joaquin Valley Regional Policy Council, and the California Central Valley Economic Development Corporation.

Building on the Partnership’s Strategic Action Proposal and the San Joaquin Valley Regional Blueprint’s smart growth principles, Smart Valley Places is our region’s roadmap to transforming itself, from one of the most challenged and underserved areas of the country into a region that embraces and reflects smart growth and sustainable development that will impact not only the health and prosperity of the region but the whole of California.
