The rural areas of California are critical to the economic and social health of the state. As the state struggles with issues of drought, groundwater management, climate change, and fire prevention, its diverse rural regions provide opportunities to improve California's sustainability. In order to realize statewide environmental, health  and economic benefits for all of California, the state needs to invest in rural communities around transportation infrastructure  and systems that support mobility, access and active living.
