Town Of Moraga

Complete Streets and Future Road Funding

On January 9, the Town Council adopted a resolution finding the Town’s General Plan consistent with the Complete Streets Act of 2008. All future road and street funding will be consolidated under a single funding source called “One Bay Area Grant” (OBAG). According to the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA), cities and counties will be required to “self-certify” that the local agency complies with the Complete Streets Act of 2008 to remain eligible for the OBAG. The first round of OBAG funds will be available in February 2013. The Council’s resolution stated that two of the 2002 Moraga General Plan central principles address reducing vehicular trips and providing for non-motorized transportation.
