Critics of the regional plan for cutting greenhouse gases in regards to state standards spoke out at a workshop last night at the Marin Center.
One Bay Area is a plan to address the state-ordered cuts to greenhouse gases caused by transportation.
The plan, which includes work from organizations like Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG), will include an outline that aims to reduce car travel in regards to how the Bay Area can grow in the coming decades, according to the Marin Independent Journal.
In 2008, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed Senate Bill 375, which requires the California's metro areas to develop a long-term plan for land use, housing and transportation that will reduce the per-capita carbon dioxide emissions from cars.
MTC will help develop the plan, and hopes to encourage bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly development near jobs and public transportation.
Many people are concerned about the regional and state mandates limiting their local control.
