Metropolitan Transportation Commission Meeting: Final Approval of Plan Bay Area

SPECIAL JOINT MEETING OF MTC COMMISSION AND ABAG EXECUTIVE BOARD

Agenda

From Greenbelt Alliance:

RSVP to attend in support of Plan Bay Area

The final Plan Bay Area is up for adoption by the boards of the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) on Thursday, July 18.

Opponents of the plan have taken to continuously pestering the elected representatives on the ABAG and MTC boards, in an effort to influence them to not adopt a plan at all. The Conservative Forum has gone so far as renting buses to bring Plan Bay Area opponents to the July 18 meeting en masse. That’s why it is absolutely critical for those of us who like the plan overall to show up at the final adoption hearing in support of Plan Bay Area.

Here’s what we think of the final Plan Bay Area. If you have any questions about the plan or adoption hearing, please email Senior Program Director Stephanie Reyes at sreyes@greenbelt.org.
