The San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC), California’s coastal zone management agency for the San Francisco Bay, has been participating in GARE since 2017 along with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) through the Bay Area Regional Collaborative (BARC).
