The Plan Bay Area 2050 Blueprint (“the Blueprint”) will integrate strategies for all four elements of the Plan – transportation, housing, the economy, and the environment – to create a more resilient and equitable future for the region. The Blueprint process started first with integrating key strategies analyzed through the Horizon initiative, both from Futures Planning and from Project Performance Assessment. Recent activities have included stakeholder and public engagement while crafting the Draft Blueprint strategies, as well as robust analysis of the Draft Blueprint throughout spring 2020. After the approval of the Final Blueprint in fall 2020, the focus will shift to the near-term Implementation Plan (see below).

MTC and ABAG will develop a short-term Implementation Plan in fall 2020 and winter 2021 for how the region can work to take near-term action to implement the strategies adopted in Plan Bay Area 2050 over the next five years. The Implementation Plan will outline tangible actions related to the elements of Plan Bay Area 2050 that MTC, ABAG and their partners could advance to realize this shared vision. Below are resources that have been created up to this point to shape and inform the Final Blueprint.
