Webinar on Plan Bay Area 2050 Final Blueprint Outcomes, Draft RHNA Methodology

Thursday, January 14, 2021

Staff from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and the Association of Bay Area Governments presented updates on the Plan Bay Area 2050 Final Blueprint, including its associated Outcomes and Growth Pattern, as well as the Draft Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) Methodology and Final RHNA Subregional Shares. Recordings and slides are now available from the December 18, 2020 webinar and the January 5, 2021 webinar.

The Final Blueprint includes a set of 35 revised and expanded strategies to tackle the Bay Area’s transportation, housing, economic and environmental challenges while creating a more resilient and equitable future for the Bay Area. These strategies are either public policies or sets of investments that can be implemented in the Bay Area over the next 30 years.

The Draft RHNA Methodology determines the total number of new homes the Bay Area needs to build—and how affordable those homes need to be—in order to meet the housing needs of people at all income levels. The RHNA subregional shares is a parallel RHNA process, allowing an approved geographic area to allocate the defined subregion’s housing need among its members. Both integrate Final Blueprint data via the 2050 Households baseline.
