Plan Bay Area 2050 Timeline

Key Phases of Plan Bay Area 2050

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

Kicking Off the Plan
Now through Fall 2019

Launched in February 2018,  the Horizon initiative will conclude in fall 2019 with recommendations on strategies that will best prepare the Bay Area for an uncertain future. These strategies — delivered through the Futures Final Report and Project Performance Assessment results —will form the foundation of Plan Bay Area 2050.

Developing the Blueprint
Fall 2019 to Summer 2020

Through collaboration with the public and with partner agencies, ABAG and MTC will develop the Blueprint for Plan Bay Area 2050. Referred to as the Preferred Scenario in earlier plans, the Blueprint will incorporate transportation, housing, economic and environmental strategies to advance a more resilient and equitable future for the San Francisco Bay Area.

Finalizing the Plan
Summer 2020 to Summer 2021

As part of the development of the Plan Bay Area 2050 document, ABAG and MTC also will produce a shorter-term Implementation Plan, and an associated Environmental Impact Report before finalizing Plan Bay Area 2050. Adoption of Plan Bay Area 2050 by both agencies is scheduled for June 2021.
