Although ABAG and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission recently approved a blueprint for housing and transportation growth for the San Francisco/Bay Area, seeing those plans and blueprints realized is far from certain. It is indeed so difficult to get buy-in not only from many Bay Area suburbs, whether in Marin, Alameda or Contra Costa counties, but also for affordable housing to be built. That means that local development according to the aforementioned blueprint is far from assured and may not be happening.
Regional planning and local constituencies are at odds and the effect is that little gets done. Put a different way, San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose which themselves have locals who are not on board with regional housing and transportation goals but overall support them, are deadlocked with other local Bay Area communities. See one of the San Francisco Business Journal’s article on the subject here.
