MTC/ABAG Planning Innovation Forums

San francisco Bay area | CA

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) are hosting a series of informational forums related to the planning and implementation of Priority Development and Conservation Areas (PDAs and PCAs).  The forums are designed to address issues City planners and officials face when their planning and economic development efforts concentrate growth in historically suburban and auto-oriented communities. The panel discussions involve experts in the related fields (e.g., affordable housing, placemaking, infrastructure financing strategies, mobility and transportation, inter-and intra-jurisdictional cooperation, community engagement, socio-demographic trends) to share their knowledge, relevant case studies and implementation strategies. The forums include interactive discussions and walking tour designed to expand participants’ toolbox of creative solutions to the challenges they face in their communities.
