What are Unelected Folks Serving YOU Here!?
Plan Bay Area is a blueprint developed by the Association of Bay Area Government s (ABAG) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), designed to implement high population density areas along public transit corridors, ensure income diversity in these high-population areas, and implement strict environmental restriction to decrease Bay Area levels of particulates and other pollutants.
