Help us increase funding for Active Transportation
The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) has recently released the draft of the 2012 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and Sustainable Community Strategy (SCS). The RTP/SCS lays out transportation and land use policies for the next 25 years in the Southern California Region. It will determine the types of projects that are built and the amount of funding available for active transportation and Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs.
The Safe Routes to Schools National Partnership (SRTSNP) is coordinating public comments to the RTP/SCS at upcoming Regional Council Meetings and will be presenting out comment letter to SCAG on February 14th. While we are generally, supportive of the plan, the SRTSNP is concernced with several aspects of the 2012 RTP/SCS. Below is a summary of the changes we would like to see in the RTP/SCS.
Please consider reading our entire comment letter and signing on to voice your support for these changes.
