Help Build the Bay Area’s Blueprint for Sustainable Communities and a Prosperous Future  
You are invited to participate, to comment, to help innovate, as our region begins a public discussion on how to accommodate future growth. Plan Bay Area is a joint effort to create a prosperous, sustainable future by producing an integrated land-use/transportation plan looking forward to 2040.Plan Bay Area – one of our region’s most comprehensive planning efforts to date – is led by the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) in partnership with the Bay Area’s other two regional government agencies, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District and the Bay Conservation and Development Commission.

Additionally, the agencies are partnering with Envision Bay Area, a strategic initiative led by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation and a group of nonprofits working to promote public participation on Plan Bay Area. An online tool – YouChoose BayArea – helps residents to understand some of the challenges and trade-offs associated with the housing and transportation needs of our growing region.
