Los Angeles County Congestion – Regional Solutions

Save the Date March 4th: Los Angeles County Stakeholder Workshop
Status of the Congestion Mitigation Plan & Fees

Last June, the Metro Board approved a motion, directing Metro staff to work with the Sacramento leadership to conduct a hearing as to whether the Congestion Management Plan (CMP) is still an appropriate and useful program. The Metro Board further directed Metro staff to report back regarding any State findings and legislative changes to CMP statute, in consultation with the business and environmental communities, local jurisdictions and the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), and report with a recommendation on meeting CMP requirements.

Per FHWA guidance of of the key goals of a CMP is to implement selected strategies and manage the transportation system.  This is a great opportunity to discuss the benefits of a more walkable, bikeable and transit friendly Los Angeles County to address congestion.  See our blog post on this issue here and the comment letter with the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition here.After this Workshop, Metro staff will report back to the Board in April 2014 with our findings from this and other stakeholder meetings.  Consider attending and contributing to this discussion!
