Comment on regional housing, transport plan from home
http://www.timesheraldonline.com/news/ci_2312...

If you have an opinion on transportation, Bay Area land use and housing, but aren't into going to public meetings, you can now comment online, sponsoring agency officials said.

The Bay Area's first combined transportation and land-use/housing plan, known as Plan Bay Area, is out for public review and comment.

The Association of Bay Area Governments and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission urge residents to weigh in with their priorities via Plan Bay Area Town Hall, http://one bayarea.org/misc/open-town-hall.html .

The commission is the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area's transportation planning, coordinating and financing agency while the association is the council of governments and regional planning agency for the nine counties and 101 cities and towns of the San Francisco Bay region.

The online tool is an effort to involve residents who might not otherwise attend a traditional public meeting.

It summarizes and links to each chapter of the Draft Plan, then offers a convenient way to comment. Officials will read the comments and consider them in the decision-making process, they said.

Nearly three years in the making, Plan Bay Area is an integrated long-range transportation and land-use/housing plan that will support a growing economy, provide more housing and transportation choices and reduce transportation-related pollution in the San Francisco Bay Area, agency officials said.

It grew out of 2008 California Legislation requiring each of the state's 18 metropolitan areas to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from cars and light trucks.

A series of open houses and public hearings has been under way to take public comment, or residents may mail comments to MTC-ABAG, Plan Bay Area Public Comment, 101 8th Street, Oakland, CA 94607. Comments are being accepted through 4 p.m. Thursday, May 16.

A final plan is slated for adoption in July.

We May Look Back At The 9-5 Workday As A Relic Of The Past
The "work anywhere" trend is even changing how cities are built.
