The Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments (AMBAG) conducted a series of collaborative community workshops in May 2013 (view summary) to initiate a regional dialogue about future growth and how we should prioritize future transportation improvements. Another round of workshops was held in July 2013 (view summary) to continue the planning process and explore initial scenarios based on feedback from the May workshops and stakeholders.
AMBAG will consolidate comments received at the various workshops and prepare two hybrid scenarios with the most desirable and best performing components of the initial 5 scenarios. The hybrid scenarios will be presented to the AMBAG Board of Directors in August, along with the comments received throughout the workshops. AMBAG will prepare a Draft Metropolitan Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (MTP/SCS) and will solicit feedback on the draft document in early 2014 with another round of workshops and public hearings.
