CASCC Planning Collaborative responds to Plan Bay Area 2050 Draft Bluprint

Posted on August 10, 2020


The Cities Association of Santa Clara County Planning Collaborative which includes the fifteen cities and the county offered comments to the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) on the Draft Blueprint for Plan Bay Area (PBA) 2050.

As a general vision for the future growth and evolution of the Bay Area through 2050, the Blueprint sets forth an ambitious agenda for addressing the region’s challenges and directing growth. While we understand your goal is to create a more affordable, connected, diverse, healthy and vibrant Bay Area, we have concerns that the Blueprint fails to do so.

While the Cities Association of Santa Clara County Planning Collaborative endorses the Blueprint’s guiding principles, we have a number of concerns about how the Blueprint will achieve the key goals of the Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS) and requirements of SB 375, as well as the feasibility and practicality of implementing the PBA Blueprint in Santa Clara County as a whole as well as for its individual jurisdictions.
