ABAG and MTC last month wrapped up the first round of public engagement for Plan Bay Area 2050+, a limited and focused update to the regional vision for transportation, housing, economic development, and environmental resilience.
For six weeks, ABAG and MTC staff held pop-up workshops in all nine Bay Area counties at community events, with a specific focus on Equity Priority Communities, to get early input on the planning process.
Staff at these events also sought recommendations on the parallel Transit 2050+ network plan and heard residents’ priorities for a potential 2026 regional transportation revenue measure.
ABAG and MTC staff also collected input via an online survey, which was completed over 2,000 times, and through a pair of virtual workshops conducted for partner agencies and stakeholders.
A webinar on updated planning assumptions will be held on Oct. 19. For more information on the webinar, visit www.planbayarea.org.
