Help Pass SCAG Motion with Active Transportation Policies!

We need your help! Advocates and community members: Your participation will help ensure an important motion (read here) supporting active transportation policies is passed. If you can, plan to provide public comments at the SCAG Regional Council Meeting (agenda) on Wednesday, April 4th at 1:00pm @ Westin Bonaventure Hotel.  If you cannot attend the meeting, please sign on to our letter to support the motion.

The motion was led by Alan Wapner of Ontario and Michele Martinez from Santa Ana. It is supported by a coalition of community groups asking elected officials and SCAG’s staff to identify new and strategic revenue sources for public and active transportation, enhance regional connectivity in all modes of transportation, increase investments into clean goods movement, track health and equity metrics throughout the region, and create regional active transportation planning. The motion’s approval process is detailed  in this previous post: SCAG Recommends Active Transportation Policies but no Funding Changes (March 27, 2012).

The Regional Council will convene on Wednesday, April 4th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel to vote for the motion and budget active transportation policy work into SCAG’s Overall Work Plan (OWP).  These meetings are part of the SCAG Regional Conference and General Assembly. The public must register online for the conference to attend the free public meetings. Conference fees only apply to participants who want food and beverages.
If you are unable to attend, please sign onto our comment letter in support of the motion, here.
