The Horizon initiative promotes the exploration of innovative strategies and solutions for issue areas that have been outside of the scope of past Plan Bay Area long-range planning processes. To delve into these topics and identify a toolbox of potential strategies for consideration in Horizon and Plan Bay Area 2050, MTC and ABAG have released a series of analyses called Perspective Papers in 2018 and 2019.
The primary objective of each Perspective Paper is to identify high-impact policies related to that topic area that support the region’s Guiding Principles. The full list of Perspective Papers can be found below:
- Autonomous Vehicles: June 2018
- Toward a Shared Future: September 2018
- Regional Growth Strategies: February 2019
- The Future of Jobs: May 2019
- Bay Crossings: October 2019
