The Plan Bay Area 2050 Draft Blueprint has been Released

MTC / ABAG
July 9, 2020 to August 10, 2020

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) announced the release of the Plan Bay Area 2050 Draft Blueprint.

They call it "a critical step in the creation of Plan Bay Area 2050, the Bay Area’s long-range plan that looks holistically at the region’s transportation, housing, economic, and environmental issues."

They claim that the Draft Blueprint "integrates 25 resilient and equitable strategies to make progress toward a more affordable, connected, diverse, healthy and vibrant Bay Area for all."

However, the "Plan" is still using the state's questionable and contestable Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) numbers, which equate to production quotas for all local city and county governments to meet.

They are currently seeking comments and questions about which strategies would best meet the challenges the Bay Area will face over the next several decades.

The agencies are holding digital workshops or telephone town hall meetings, or provide input via an online survey.

The Public Comment period is open July 10, 2020 through August 10, 2020
