3 Organization of the Vision Guide All visioning processes are unique and reflect the community context in which they occur. However, there are common questions that provide meaning and structure to any visioning process: Where are we now? Where are we going? Where do we want to be? How will we get there? These themes form the basis of the Vision Guide, which presents a structured, simplified blueprint to enable practitioners to engage in visioning in support of transportation plan- ning. The Vision Guide includes three phases, 14 activity areas, 35 critical activities, and a wide variety of potential products, resources, and tools for the practitioner within an inter active format. The Vision Guide (illustrated in Figure ES.1) is designed to be interactive and to enable a practitioner to navigate these process steps to access information readily. The guide is organized into three phases, with activity areas that describe the practitioner's roles and responsibilities within critical activities. Also included are components covering four key topics, which provide Figure ES.1. The Vision Guide.
