Priority Development Area (PDA) Investment & Growth Strategy

The Authority’s Priority Development Area Investment & Growth Strategy — the PDA Strategy — outlines the steps the Authority will take to support cities, towns and the County in developing their priority development areas. PDAs are places identified by Bay Area communities as areas for investment, new homes and job growth and are the foundation for sustainable regional growth and Plan Bay Area. Each Congestion Management Agency (CMA) in the Bay Area is required to prepare a PDA strategy as part of its responsibilities under MTC Resolution 4202.

The 2017 PDA Strategy, adopted May 17, 2017, is the fourth adopted by the Authority. This update focuses on updating the status of the eight actions first established in the 2013 strategy. The key changes reflect the Authority’s integration of Measure J and One Bay Area Grant funding, incorporation of OBAG 2 funding, and additional research into market conditions within PDAs in Contra Costa.
