ABAG, MTC Invite Residents to Shape Bay Area’s Future

Plan Bay Area 2050 Pop-Ups Start Saturday in Napa

SAN FRANCISCO, October 3, 2019 . . . The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) invite Bay Area residents to help shape the future of the region through 2050 by providing their input at a series of “Pop Up” events beginning Saturday in Napa.

ABAG and MTC are holding 29 Plan Bay Area 2050 Pop-Ups around the region that are scheduled through early November. MTC and ABAG staff will be on hand, asking the public for thoughts on strategies to make the Bay Area more affordable, better connected, and even more economically vibrant, healthy and diverse over the next generation.

Plan Bay Area 2050 is a 30-year roadmap, charting a course for how the nine-county region will grow and how it can support this growth with new infrastructure. Using input from the public, business and nonprofit organizations, and local governments, the long-range plan will integrate transportation, housing, the economy and the environment. The plan will be grounded in equity to ensure that no group will be left behind. It will also address resilience to earthquakes, wildfires and rising sea levels.

The first Plan Bay Area 2050 Pop-Up event will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., Saturday, October 5, at the Napa Farmer's Market, 195 Gasser Drive in Napa. The Pop-Up location is in the South Napa Century Center parking lot.
