What is the state of the regulatory landscape? What are the threats facing our region and how can we address them when so much is changing? Considering all of these challenges and risks, how do we even start to prioritize our efforts and resources?

These questions and more will be addressed this upcoming Thursday, May 11th, at Bay Planning Coalition’s annual Spring Summit at the Oakland Scottish Rite Center. This full day event brings together leaders in industry, commerce, and regional planning and infrastructure from across the wider Bay Area to discuss key policy issues affecting our region, state, and nation.

This year’s theme is Uncharted Waters: Finding Opportunity in Uncertainty, and the focus of the day will be on how we can navigate the “uncharted waters” of today’s political climate from a business, regulatory and even practical perspective. Topics of conversation planned for this year’s event include, among others: the state of the region’s economy, navigating regulatory uncertainty, the short and long term risks facing the Bay Area, and how to go about finding opportunity in the face of the many challenges that come with all of these things.

For the first time, the program features expert panels moderated by local media personalities, including Ed Baxter, Denis Cuff and Phil Matier. Topic highlights include the latest from key officials on the USGS’s HayWired project and the Sea-Level Rise Guidance being developed by the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research. A keynote conversation with Supervisor John Gioia will be facilitated by San Francisco Chronicle Editorial Page Editor John Diaz.
