Priority Development Area Investment and Growth Strategy

As part of implementing the One BayArea Grant (OBAG) Program, Alameda CTC has developed a Priority Development Area (PDA) Investment and Growth Strategy that includes a strategy for prioritizing OBAG Cycle 2 transportation funds in a way that supports and encourages development in the region’s PDAs. It includes the following elements:

  • An overview of Alameda County’s 46 PDAs and an update on development in Alameda County.
  • Engagement of regional and local agencies, including outreach as part of the development of the Countywide Transportation Plan, three modal plans and the Comprehensive Investment Plan.
  • An update on transportation and land use, including housing policies and current and future activities to support PDA development.
  • OBAG 2 funding priorities that Alameda CTC identified and the selection process for funding PDA-supportive transportation programs and projects.

The Commission adopted the PDA Investment and Growth Strategy in May 2017 as required by Metropolitan Transportation Commission Resolution 4202.
