Our Current Initiatives


Right now, one of the main dynamic forces facing the region is climate change, an issue that affects regional well-being, from our economy to the air we breathe and how we live. That is why MBEP is launching an initiative to address climate change, an issue interwoven with every single thing on our agenda to date: housing, transportation, technology, and workforce development.


MBEP is dedicated to improving the quality of life in the region, and how we move within and between our cities has a major impact on the well-being of our neighborhoods and residents.


We believe that a robust quality of life is important for all of our residents. One important step to achieving our mission is ensuring the availability of safe and affordable housing.


MBEP continues to build momentum to help local businesses hire local talent, and to provide resources for residents to be able to make a living wage.


Developing a thriving tech ecosystem in the Monterey Bay region is one of our key initiatives. We are currently focused on getting high-speed internet coverage throughout the region.
