Closing thoughts

Closing Thoughts

  • BRAC is not the sole driver of growth in the State.

  • Focused, well coordinated planning is critical.

  • There will be smart growth, sprawl growth, and deflected growth.

  • Partnerships will be necessary. Everyone has a role – public, private and non-profit sectors.
