The Bay Area Toll Authority and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission are scheduled to meet starting at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, February 28, at the Bay Area Metro Center in San Francisco.

The BATA meeting will be brief, with a Chair’s Report and approval of a consent calendar. View the agenda here.

The MTC meeting (full agenda) will consist of three committee presentations. Via the Legislation Committee, the Commission will consider offering support for Proposition 69, formally known as ACA 5, which would provide long-term revenue from recently enacted fuel taxes and vehicle fees to reinvest in California’s aging local roads and state highways.

Finally, via the Programming and Allocations Committee, the Commission will consider approval of the Bay Area Preservation Pilot (BAPP) Fund, a $10 million revolving loan fund to acquire and protect homes currently affordable to low-income residents that are available on the market (handout); and the $792 million FY2018-19 fund estimate (handout) plus a proposed new distribution policy for State Transit Assistance population-based funds administered by MTC, which has been augmented with new funding through Senate Bill 1 (handout).
