Later this summer, we will launch a new ticketing system and we'll be asking you to register for each event you're planning to attend. This will help us keep you informed of any changes and better tailor our schedules and offerings.
With nine counties and 101 municipalities, the Bay Area is governmentally partitioned. The decisions resulting from these divisions have profound impacts that resonate across the region, shaping how and where housing and commercial development is placed, how our disparate transportation systems are networked and more. Join us for a conversation between two of our region’s preeminent experts on regional planning as they discuss the balance between local and regional control and the role of transportation as both a connector and divider in our communities. Co-presented by the Northern California Section of the American Planning Association.
