Sustainable Communities Technical Assistance

Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) Sustainable Communities Technical Assistance Program (SC-TAP) offered local jurisdictions on-call consultant expertise primarily for projects that are located in priority development areas (PDAs) or growth opportunity areas (GOAs). SC-TAP was intended to enable implementation of local complete streets policies, transit supportive land use projects or bicycle and pedestrian improvement projects.

The technical assistance provided by SC-TAP includes:

  • Feasibility studies for pedestrian, bicycle and trail, and circulation projects.
  • Support for public outreach to plan and implement complete streets policies including assistance for downtown specific planning.
  • Technical assessments of parking amenities and park-and-ride facilities.

SC-TAP Projects

The SC-TAP was designed to be consistent with One Bay Area Grant Program requirements per the Metropolitan Transportation Commission Resolution 4035, as well as with MTC’s PDA Planning Program and the Association of Bay Area Government’s FOCUS Technical Assistance Program.
