After three years of public discussion and technical work, the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) released Draft Plan Bay Area 2050 last week. Plan Bay Area 2050 is a long-range plan charting the course for the future of the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. A public comment period runs through 5 p.m., Tuesday, July 20, 2021.

From envisioning a next-generation network of frequent-service transit to strategies for tackling the regional housing crisis to a pioneering suite of protections against sea level rise, Plan Bay Area 2050 takes a comprehensive look at the region’s challenges and identifies actions to be advanced by all levels of government in the coming years.

Available for review at planbayarea.org, the Draft Plan Bay Area 2050 focuses on four key issues: the economy, the environment, housing and transportation; outlines 35 bold strategies for growth and investment through 2050; and identifies a path to make the Bay Area more equitable for all residents and more resilient in the face of unexpected challenges.
