House lawmakers expect to be on their way back home for their weeklong Memorial Day recess by early afternoon today, leaving the Senate with no other option than to clear their transportation policy plan exactly as they passed it — or risk an expiration that would hold up infrastructure projects throughout the country.

Public outreach for Plan Bay Area 2040 is in full swing this spring, with the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) staging open houses in each of the nine Bay Area counties through May 28. Using sticky dots, participants vote on their top goals for the plan, choosing from among seven options: climate protection, adequate housing, healthy and safe communities, open space and agricultural preservation, equitable access, economic vitality, and transportation system effectiveness.
If you missed the meeting in your county, you can still participate virtually, via the online Plan Bay Area Open Forum, which will be active through May 31, 2015. The public comments will feed into the “Goals and Targets” that will form the foundation for this iteration of the region’s long-range plan, which is updated every four years.
Marin County: Thursday, May 28, 2015, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Marin County Civic Center Cafe, 3501 Civic Center Drive, 2nd Floor, San Rafael
