Public to participate in transportation plan

Submitted By the Metropolitan Transportation Commission

How can we get more people involved in prioritizing transportation policies and investments? What are the best ways to encourage Bay Area residents to participate in planning for the regionÕs future? The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), the Bay AreaÕs transportation planning and financing agency, is inviting public review and comments on its Draft 2018 Public Participation Plan.

The draft document can be viewed online at mtc.ca.gov/about-mtc/public-participation/public-participation-plan. Comments are due by 4 p.m. Monday, May 7, 2018.

The Draft 2018 Public Participation Plan highlights opportunities for Bay Area residents to engage in the range of MTCÕs planning work and funding allocations. Also included as Appendix A are planning and decision milestones for the pending update to the regionÕs long-range transportation and land use blueprint, known as Plan Bay AreaÑslated to be adopted jointly by MTC and the Association of Bay Area Governments in 2021.

MTCÕs current Public Participation Plan was adopted in 2015 to satisfy state and federal requirements for a transparent and inclusive public process. A final 2018 Public Participation Plan is slated for adoption in June 2018. Comments can be emailed to info@bayareametro.gov or mailed to MTC Public Information, 375 Beale Street, Suite 800, San Francisco, CA 94105.

Comments must be received by 4 p.m. on Monday, May 7, 2018. To request a copy of the Draft 2018 Public Participation Plan, including in accessible formats or other languages such as Spanish and Chinese, please call MTC at (415) 778-6757.
