This March, MTC staff members visited all nine Bay Area counties to get community input for the Horizon initiative, a new planning effort underway that explores the pressing issues and possible challenges Bay Area residents may face through 2050.
We stopped by farmers markets, flea markets, libraries, shopping centers, schools, conferences, festivals and transit hubs to try to find out what matters to you and your communities. Looking forward to 2050, we asked, "Which qualities of today's Bay Area do you hope remain in 2050?" and "Which qualities of today's Bay Area do you hope will change by 2050?" and recorded the responses. Take a look at some of the people who stopped by and what they said.
Based on the input heard from Bay Area residents at these outreach events, MTC planners are crafting Guiding Principles, which identify regional aspirations over the next three decades and will be used to guide the Horizon process.
