Plan Bay Area (also known as One Bay Area) is a plan adopted by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and the Executive Board of ABAG in July 2013, incorporating the 9-county region’s regional Sustainable Communities Strategy and its 2040 Regional Transportation Plan, along with the associated final Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The Plan includes initiatives to expand housing and transportation choices, create healthier communities, and build a strong regional economy. All 18 metropolitan areas of California were required to complete similar plans to comply with SB 375’s requirements. These include a Sustainable Communities Strategy to accommodate future growth and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from cars and light trucks. Housing production is focused in Priority Development Areas (PDAs). The Draft Blueprint was released in July 2020 with specific steps towards reaching the adopted Plan Bay Area 2050 Vision.
