Priority Development Area (PDA) Investment & Growth Strategy

The PDA Strategy is a key implementation measure for the new Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) regional plan, Plan Bay Area. The Authority adopted its Initial PDA Strategy in April 2013. That document provided a general assessment of Priority Development Areas in Contra Costa but focused mostly on the criteria for allocating funding through the OneBayArea Grant, or OBAG, Program.

 In addition to documenting the actions the Authority has taken over the past year to implement the Initial PDA Strategy, the 2014 PDA Strategy provides a more detailed assessment of each PDA in Contra Costa and evaluates the local jurisdiction’s housing programs as they apply to the PDAs.
