Association of Bay Area Governments

ABAG stands for the Association of Bay Area Governments. Our mission is to strengthen cooperation and collaboration across local governments to build healthier, stronger communities.

ABAG is part regional planning agency and part local government service provider. We accomplish our goals by providing planning services and cost-effective ABAG member services to local governments struggling with rising costs and diminishing incomes.

Integrating Climate Adaptation and Resilience into HE Updates

July 27, 9:00 a.m., this meeting focuses on reducing risks from wildfire, flooding, earthquakes, and climate change impacts in your Housing Element. This workshop also previews new data tables to characterize existing housing stock exposure and demonstrate how climate and seismic data layers can be used to site future housing in the Housing Element Site Selection (HESS) tool. The release of a new document, “Resilient Housing Policies,” will help identify appropriate companion policies to ensure present and to-be-constructed housing will last into the future.  Register for this free event.
