Help Shape the Future of the Bay Area!
We want to know what you think about plans to successfully manage growth in our community in the coming decades. We are mid-way through the plan development process, and are considering alternative strategies for future growth in housing, jobs and the transportation network. Your voice will contribute to the selection of a preferred way forward.

For the past month, residents from across the San Francisco Bay Area have come together at a series of public open houses to discuss how to plan for our region's future growth.
Plan Bay Area, the region's long-range transportation and housing roadmap, is being updated. The Plan looks to the year 2040, when two million more residents and 1.1 million new jobs are expected in the nine-county Bay Area. How this growth takes place will affect us all.
Even if you could not attend the open house in your community, you can still participate online via the Plan Bay Area Open Forum, which will be active through May 31, 2015.
You can offer comments on long-term goals to:
- House the projected population;
- Maintain and enhance our transportation infrastructure;
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions;
- Improve public health;
- And, much more.
The public comments will feed into the "Goals and Targets" that will form the foundation for this iteration of the Bay Area's long-range plan, which is updated every four years.
Plus, you'll be able to learn about how future housing and employment numbers are forecast and what transportation improvements are already in the pipeline for your county and the region.
What kind of Bay Area we build today will be the legacy we leave for the next generation. If we want to continue to have a strong economy, with a range of housing, transportation and employment options for our region's residents, we need to plan now.
Please join the discussion online at PlanBayArea.org and help spread the word about the forum to your colleagues and neighbors. If you want to receive updates about Plan Bay Area 2040, sign up here: http://planbayarea.org/get-involved.html.
