Streamlining & Strife Under the Plan Bay Area
We welcome you to join ULI for what promises to be a relevant and timely discussion about the opportunities and implications for developers, planners, government officials, environmentalists, and other stakeholders posed by this ambitious land-use plan. In preparing the Plan Bay Area (Plan), MTC and ABAG were faced with the challenge of developing a multibillion dollar long-range plan to accommodate the nine-county region’s projected increase of 1.1 million jobs and 2.1 million people by the year 2040, but at the same time achieving a 7 percent reduction in per capita greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by the year 2020 and a 15 percent reduction in per capita GHG by the year 2035.
The panel will outline key aspects of the Plan and explore related issues. Are affected jurisdictions embracing or resisting their allocations of this growth? Will the Plan create funding from both the public and private sectors? Lastly, panelists will share their thoughts on how the Plan may give rise to CEQA streamlining opportunities for future projects that are consistent with the Plan—under or even outside SB 375. What risks exist for those projects inconsistent with the Plan?
The panel will be moderated by Egon Terplan, SPUR’s Regional Planning Director.
