Draft Plan Bay Area 2050

Plan Bay Area 2050 is the region’s long-range strategic plan focused on the interrelated elements of housing, the economy, transportation and the environment. The heart of the plan is 35 strategies, described in the chapters below.

As the Bay Area continues to grapple with the lasting local and global effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, uncertainty about the future for our families and loved ones, and our community at large, feels greater than ever before. In this moment of reckoning, the Bay Area is at a crossroads. Does the region strategically move from isolation and fear into a future that is more affordable, diverse, connected, healthy and vibrant for every Bay Area resident, or do we continue down a path of inequality? Plan Bay Area 2050 is a blueprint for policies and investments that work toward the former — a vision for a brighter future defined by equity and resilience to uncertainty in the decades to come.
