Virtual General Assembly and Webinar

ABAG held a two-part General Assembly in June with 98 attendees at the Business Meeting on the 11th and 121 attendees at the Regional Planning Programs Webinar on the 25th.

At the Business Meeting, attendees reviewed the ABAG Budget and Work Plan for fiscal year 2020-2021, and approved the Budget after considerable discussion about proposed member dues.  The Finance Committee and Executive Board will look at reducing or adjusting the dues increase as presented in the Budget and Work Plan and will report back in October.  The dues discussion will be shared with all delegates and alternates to the General Assembly.  You can view the Business Meeting at https://abag.ca.gov/meetings/general-assembly-2020-jun-11

The webinar — designed for local elected officials — presented information on ABAG-MTC’s planning activities and their nexus with housing. The session included presentations on Plan Bay Area 2050, the Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) and Regional Early Planning (REAP) grant activities. Attendees included electeds, city and county staff, and interested parties.
