This webinar, part of the Regional Housing Technical Assistance Training series, was co-produced by California Office of Planning and Research (OPR) on May 11, 2021. The webinar covers the nuts and bolts of integrated planning, with a focus on safety and environmental justice elements. It includes a section on integrated planning in practice, with perspectives from cities and counties. ABAG/Metropolitan Transportation Commission produced companion materials to describe how state integration requirements overlay for different Bay Area jurisdictions and approaches to consider for integrating plan updates.
