Click on MTC Plan Bay Area Policy Maps
and please study the shocking changes planned for the Bay Area.
discussed at the MTC Board Meeting on July 13, 2012
The MTC published these policy maps to help planners visualize the "opportunities within the grand vision" of the One Bay Area Plan. They call for massive urbanization throughout the Bay Area through a combination of upzoning, transportation funds, urban growth boundary, development fess (or penalties) and grants.
You'll find that you may have to pay a fine of up to $50,000 (above current development fees) to discourage residential development in outlying areas. Non-residential development may have to pay a fee of up to $20.00 per square foot. Other development in the "approved areas" (such as the Marinwood Priority Development Area) may receive grants for building. The Marinwood PDA is a "transit neighborhood" and will be upzoned to 50 units per acre vs. 4 single family houses per acre on most streets now. We will add from 1500 to 4000 housing units to the current area East of Las Gallinas.
Make no mistake, the One Bay Area Plan is nothing short of a radical scheme to reshape the bay area communities, economy, transportation, and government. This overambitious central plan will create an effective "city state" and strip away property rights, local democracy and economic opportunity for millions.
Supervisor Susan Adams needs to address the community with the Truth. She has served on the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) for over 9 1/2 years including two years as Vice President.
