From the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC)
Plan Bay Area 2050 is a long-range plan charting the course for the future of the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.
Plan Bay Area 2050 focuses on four key issues: the economy, the environment, housing and transportation. This new regional plan outlines strategies for growth and investment through the year 2050, while simultaneously striving to meet and exceed federal and state requirements. The Metropolitan Transportation Commission and the Association of Bay Area Governments are expected to adopt Plan Bay Area 2050 in fall 2021.
While it pinpoints policies and investments necessary to advance the goal of a more affordable, connected, diverse, healthy and vibrant Bay Area, Plan Bay Area 2050 neither funds specific infrastructure projects nor changes local policies. Cities and counties retain all local land use authority. Ultimately, Plan Bay Area 2050 reflects a shared vision — one that cannot be implemented by any single organization or government agency. Only through partnership with local, state and federal governments — as well as with businesses and non-profit organizations — will the plan’s vision come to fruition.
