OAKLAND, CA—The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) invite the public to open houses in San Francisco on Wednesday, May 13, and in San Rafael on Thursday, May 28, to learn about an update to the region's long-range transportation and housing roadmap known as Plan Bay Area.

Bay Area residents who attend these open houses will have the opportunity to view displays and offer comments on long-term goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from cars and light-duty trucks, house the region's projected population, improve public health, maintain the region's transportation infrastructure and preserve open space, among others. Displays will also feature the schedule and key milestones for the plan update, offer information on how new housing and employment is forecast, and provide information on transportation improvements in the works at the county and regional level.

When & Where:

The meetings in San Francisco and Marin counties are the final two open houses in a series that has been held in all nine Bay Area counties since April 29. Residents unable to attend an open house are invited to participate via the Spring 2015 Virtual Open House on the Plan Bay Area website:

MTC is the transportation planning, financing and coordinating agency for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. ABAG is the Council of Governments and the official regional planning agency for the 101 cities and towns, and nine counties of the Bay Area.
