SPUR Comments on Plan Bay Area 2050’s Draft Growth Geographies and StrategiesFebruary 26, 2020
SPUR comments on Plan Bay Area 2050’s draft growth geographies and draft growth strategies. SPUR has long participated in and commented on Plan Bay Area because it is an important regional vision that local governments can look to when making land use and development decisions. Plan Bay Area 2050 is particularly monumental for incorporating strategies to address economic inequality and climate change, and we commend the Commission and staff for their leadership on these critically important issues. This letter recommends that ABAG and MTC shape regional growth even if cities do not nominate new locations for growth and recommends 12 additional policy strategies to help the Bay Area pivot towards a brighter future.
