SCAG starts next RTP Cycle: Voice Your Support for Active Transportation June 6th

2016-2040 RTP Schedule

It seems like just yesterday we were at the 2012 General Assembly celebrating the passage of the 2012 Regional Transportation Plan and Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS).  And while, implementation of the 2012 plan is getting underway, guess what, it’s time to do it all over again.

The 2016 RTP/SCS will gather data from 5 counties and numerous government agencies and stakeholders.  Outreach typically starts three years ahead of the RTP adoption with scoping.  Then the data crunching and hard work starts as SCAG collects general plan information and transportation data.  After that comes the modeling and scenario development. This summer there are two opportunities for the public and stakeholders to participate.

One of the earliest opportunities for providing feedback on the 2016 RTP/SCS will be June 6th at the Regional Council Meeting.  At this meeting the Regional Council will adopt the 6 policy frameworks that have been developed over the past 12 months with input from stakeholders and elected officials.

A second opportunity will be to attend the regular Technical Working Group meetings.  The next Technical Working Group will be held on June 13 from 10-12.

The National Partnership and our partners will be working closely with SCAG to ensure the implementation of the 2012 RTP/SCS and to ensure that the 2016 RTP/SCS goes even further to address safety, complete streets, public health and land use changes.
