West County Action Plan

As part of CCTA’s 2023 update of the Countywide Transportation Plan, the Regional Transportation Planning Committees (including WCCTAC), are updating their Action Plans for Routes of Regional Significance. The Action Plans are intended to reduce the impact of new development on freeways, arterials, transit and major trails. Each Action Plan identifies a system of Regional Routes, including roadways, transit routes, and bike and pedestrian facilites that provide the main connections among Contra Costa's communities and to the surrounding region. The Action Plans help local jurisdictions meet the requirement in the Authority's Growth Management Program.

Each Action Plan includes:

  • Long-range assumptions regarding future land use based on local general plans, consistent with regional forecasts
  • Overarching goals that articulate the Contra Costa Transportation Authority’s vision for the future
  • Adopted Regional Transportation Objectives (RTOs) that use a quantifiable measure of effectiveness.
  • Specific actions to be implemented by each participating agencies.
  • Requirements for consultation on environmental documents among participating localities.
  • Procedures for review of impacts resulting from proposed local General Plan amendments that have the potential to influence the effectiveness of adopted Action Plans

In February 2023 the WCCTAC Board approved a final draft of the West County Action Plan, which is attached below.  final draft. After the CCTA's completion of the plan's environmental review, the final, adopted-version of the West County Action Plan will be adoped.  The previously adopted plan from September 2017 is also attached below.
