Plan Bay Area stands to make significant changes to housing and transit across the Bay Area - favoring and incentivizing cities and counties that plan high density housing around transit - sometimes referred to as "smart growth". The Institute for Leadership Studies at Dominican University is sponsoring a meeting of the minds on this subject, bringing together four leading figures on both sides of the plan.
Opposing Plan Bay Area:
- Randal O'Toole of the Cato institute, author of "Gridlock".
- Thomas Rubin, an Oakland based transportation consultant and former Chief Financial Officer of Southern California Rapid Transit District (1989-1994).
Supporting Plan Bay Area:
- Steve Kinsey, MTC commissioner and Marin County Supervisor
- Mark Luce, Napa County Supervisor and President of the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG).
Both hold leadership positions in the two agencies that developed Plan Bay Area.
Panelists will speak to the issue of the evening and respond to audience questions. The League of Women Voters and community leader Richard Hall will facilitate audience questions submitted that evening by card.
(If you are from Marin or the other North Bay Counties, please try to attend. If you are not from Marin, demand something similar in your county. The public needs to know about this plan.)
