BPC Spring Summit: 2020 Vision
Please join Bay Planning Coalition for an important thought leadership summit about the future of the Bay Area on June 5th at the renowned David Brower Center in Downtown Berkeley.
In the face of unprecedented transportation, housing, and climate crises, the Bay Area is falling short on delivering vital projects that would help respond to these issues. Our collective inability to timely plan and build crucial infrastructure, housing, and climate adaptation projects is increasingly forcing residents – and businesses – out of the Bay Area. At this year’s Spring Summit, Bay Planning Coalition is bringing together top leaders across the region to explore how the Bay Area can break through regulatory, political, and financial gridlock to expedite project delivery and strengthen both our economic future and quality of life.
We’re pleased to announce Secretary Wade Crowfoot of the California Natural Resources Agency as our keynote speaker, who will highlight his agency’s Cutting Green Tape initiative to improve the permitting and funding efficiencies for ecological restoration projects. The event will also feature top regional experts to explore how we can collectively overcome the challenges associated with delivering our long range planning visions, and showcase numerous cases where interagency collaboration helped break through gridlock to expedite the delivery of projects that are critical to the future vitality of the Bay Area.
Join your fellow BPC members, policymakers, public agency staff, and other regional leaders for a series of speakers and panels in the morning, followed by a networking lunch reception on the Terrace Level of the David Brower Center. Special thanks to all of our committed sponsors. To learn more or become a sponsor, please contact Ashley LaBass (firstname.lastname@example.org)
