AMBAG to host sustainable communities workshop

The Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments will host a sustainable communities public workshop Tuesday at 6 p.m., at the Hollister Community Center, 300 West St., in Hollister.

AMBAG will be conducting a series of six collaborative community workshops to initiate a regional dialogue about future growth and how we should prioritize future transportation improvements, including the workshop in Hollister.

According to AMBAG projections, by the year 2035 the tri-county region of Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Cruz counties will see an increase of more than 150,000 people, 40,000 housing units, and nearly 65,000 jobs.

At each workshop, stakeholders will provide their preferences for how to decrease transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions and accommodate housing and employment growth for the region.
