A Win-Win-Win: Collaborating Across Jurisdictional Boundaries

Posted on: November 12th, 2015 by Sara James

It’s a common fact that many planning and development issues don’t adhere to geographic or jurisdictional boundaries.  As a result, many regional development organizations (RDOs) are recognizing the need to collaborate with neighboring organizations and even across state lines.  Panelists at this session discussed both the challenges RDOs face when attempting to collaborate over a wide geographic area or across jurisdictional boundaries and the significance of these partnerships when dealing with development issues that go above and beyond the capacity of one organization alone.
