Are We Coming Through Loud and Clear? Are We Hearing You?

MTC/ABAG staff and members of the public discuss the projections for population and housing for Plan Bay Area 2040 at an open house event. Individuals stand in groups while display boards are on the table in the background.

Marshall McLuhan famously posited that “the medium is the message,” meaning that how you convey information is as important as the intended message itself. MTC’s Draft 2018 Public Participation Plan examines the media and methods the agency uses to get its messages across to the public, and to collect feedback. In essence, we are asking the public to comment on how they would like to receive information and comment in the future on MTC’s plans and programs. Read More
