These plans are created with much public input, and with a 20-year horizon. METRO 2020, adopted in 1995, was the first such plan for the newly expanded four county metropolitan region and with intermodal and expanded public involvement consideration required by the ISTEA legislation of 1991. Horizon 2020 reflects on the successes and challenges of the past 25 years.
