Contact

For more information about this plan, contact Heather by email or phone: (831) 264-5086

AMBAG is the MPO (Metropolitan Planning Organization) for the Monterey Bay Area. As the MPO, AMBAG is required to produce certain documents that maintain the region's eligibility for federal transportation assistance which include the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). AMBAG coordinates the development of the MTP with Regional Transportation Planning Agencies (San Benito County Council of Governments, the Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission and the Transportation Agency for Monterey County), transit providers (San Benito County Local Transit Authority, Monterey-Salinas Transit, and Santa Cruz METRO), the Monterey Bay Air Resources District (MBARD), state and federal governments, and organizations having interest in or responsibility for transportation planning and programming. AMBAG also coordinates transportation planning and programming activities with the three counties and 18 local jurisdictions within the tri-county Monterey Bay Region.

AMBAG is developing the 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (MTP/SCS). The 2045 MTP/SCS is scheduled for adoption in June 2022. Federal and state law requires that AMBAG prepare a long-range transportation plan every four years. The draft 2045 MTP/SCS is scheduled to be released for public comment and review in late 2021.

May 2021 Virtual Workshops

AMBAG held virtual workshops to learn about new tools to help shape our future together in collaborative and positive ways.

By 2045, another 107,500 people will likely live in our region. We are also forecasted to create nearly 42,000 new homes and more than 65,000 new jobs! Where will we live? Where will we work? How can we as a region make it easier for our residents to find appropriate housing and get to jobs and other destinations? And how can we best minimize impacts to the environment and maintain a quality of life that is the envy of visitors to our region?

Each virtual workshop began with a presentation describing the Sustainable Communities Strategy and the potential new strategies to help local communities plan for a more sustainable future and high quality of living. During the presentation, various questions were asked in order to gather more input about housing, economic and transportation options for our region.

A short online survey to provide feedback on potential new strategies to gather more input on housing, economic and transportation options was also available for those who were unable attend a workshop.
