From Greenbelt Alliance:
At this meeting, the Association of Bay Area Governments and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission will likely adopt the “preferred scenario” for Plan Bay Area – the region’s comprehensive land-use and transportation plan for the next 30 years. The agencies will also adopt the OneBayArea grant program that will provide funding for cities and counties that are planning for sustainable growth. (FYI, we’ve written volumes — 1, 2, & 3 to be exact — on the OneBayArea grant program.)
Please help us out. Plan to attend following meeting to voice your support for a strong Plan Bay Area and OneBayArea grant program:
MTC Commission and ABAG Executive Board
Thursday, May 17, 7:00 p.m.
Oakland Marriott City Center — Junior Ballroom
1001 Broadway, Oakland
At Liege, we’ll hand out talking points and discuss how to handle the opposition that we expect to turnout. We’ll walk over to the Oakland Mariott City Center shortly before 7 p.m.
