Silicon Valley's robust economy has yielded tremendous job growth - yet this prosperity has its down side as the boom has led to more traffic and fewer housing options. Joint Ventures Silicon Valley, under the leadership of former California State Senator Becky Morgan, is developing a model program applicable to all communities trying to balance business development with quality of life issues. In this speech, Morgan talks about her organization's plan, which incorporates community input and measurable goals. She stresses the importance of prioritizing community values, creating a model for successful expansion, and overcoming challenges to build vision.
