Lamorinda Action Plan

The Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) is Contra Costa’s designated Congestion Management Agency (CMA) and the regional transportation planning body for Contra Costa County responsible for planning and delivering a wide range of projects and programs that meet the county’s regional transportation goals and objectives.

CCTA is responsible for delivery of a Countywide Transportation Plan (CTP) which provides the overall direction for achieving and maintaining a functional and balanced transportation system within the county while strengthening the links between transportation and land use.

Additionally, CCTA is responsible for delivering a total of five Action Plans, one for each subregion of Contra Costa County, to meet compliance with the voter-approved Measure J Transportation and Growth Management Program.  This requirement is included under the requirement to “Participate in an Ongoing, Cooperative, Multi-jurisdictional Planning Process”.

CCTA is currently in the process of updating the Action Plan for each of the five subregions in Contra Costa County, including the Lamorinda region which includes the incorporated jurisdictions of Lafayette, Orinda and Moraga as well as the unincorporated portions of southwestern Contra Costa County. CCTA will accept the adopted Action Plans for inclusion into the CTP in 2023.

2023 Lamorinda Action Plan

The purpose of the Action Plan is for each Regional Transportation Planning Committee (RTPC) to work cooperatively to establish overall goals, identify Routes of Regional Significance (RRS), create a set of performance measures called Regional Transportation Objectives (RTOs), and establish a set of actions that will support achievement of the RTOs.

The Action Plan represents a work program for a range of bodies, including the City of Orinda, the Lamorinda Program Management Committee (LPMC), CCTA, Caltrans, BART and others. The intent of the work plan is to meet the goals and RTOs. 

To date, the Plan has been prepared with input from a wide range of stakeholders including LPMC staff and Board, CCTA, the Southwest Area Transportation Committee (SWAT), and members of the public as part of a multi-year public engagement process. 

There will be multiple opportunities for you to learn about the updates to the Plan and provide input, including the Moraga Farmer’s Market (November 6, 2022), Orinda Farmer’s Market (November 12, 2022), and a virtual (online) workshop hosted by CCTA (November 17, 2022). For more information, refer to the CCTA’s Countywide Transportation Plan website.
