The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) this spring are holding a series of nine open houses across the Bay Area, and invite residents to help craft Plan Bay Area 2040, the long-range regional transportation and land-use strategy slated for adoption in the summer of 2017. The agencies seek residents’ help in prioritizing transportation investments and evaluating various scenarios developed by MTC and ABAG staff for how the Bay Area may look in 2040.

How do you begin to talk about housing affordability in a region with increasing wealth as well as areas of intractable poverty and skyrocketing costs of living? MTC and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) teamed up to host a forum on this very topic, “Calling the Bay Area Home: Tackling the Housing Affordability and Displacement Challenge,” at the Oakland Marriott City Center on Saturday, February 20, 2016.
Thank you to everyone who participated in Calling the Bay Area Home: Tackling the Affordable Housing and Displacement Challenge. The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and MTC, which jointly sponsored the event, value your ideas. Materials, presentations and video from the housing forum can be found here.
Bay Area housing and transportation policymakers, city planners, community and business leaders, housing developers and advocates are invited to attend a half-day event for a timely and important dialogue on the role that Bay Area local governments and regional agencies — as well as the state and federal government — can play in addressing skyrocketing housing costs and displacement of long-time residents.
