The grow smart bay area plan is an incredible urban strategy for the growth of the San Francisco Bay area.

"We can focus all the region's needed new development in existing urban areas, especially in downtowns and around transportation hubs. We can use land now wasted on vacant lots, parking lots, and other under-used properties to build the homes people need in thriving new neighborhoods."
