Presentation on the Sustainable Communities Strategy/Plan Bay Area (ABAG/MTC Staff)

On May 17, 2012, ABAG and MTC are expected to approve a preferred land use and transportation strategy that will be evaluated over the next six months as part of the development of a Sustainable Communities Strategy (Plan Bay Area), which must be adopted pursuant to SB 375 by April 2013. The ABAG and MTC staffs will explain the how Draft Jobs-Housing Connection Scenario and draft Bay Area Transportation Investment Strategy are being integrated, the key concerns that have been expressed by the public and the JPC agencies about the draft land use and transportation strategy, how these concerns are being addressed, the implications of the SCS on the economy, equity and the environment, and how the next required update of Plan Bay Area can be made more comprehensive.
