SCAG RTP/SCS Comments Due February 1

unnamedThe Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) officially released the draft 2016 Regional Transportation Plan and Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS) for public comment in early December, and comments are due Monday, February 1. For a summary of what’s in the plan, read our blog post from early December. And if you’re planning on submitting your own comments, you can do so here. There’s still time to attend a public hearing or elected official briefing. The full list is available here.

The Safe Routes to School National Partnership’s Southern California team have been actively participating in the RTP/SCS update process over the past few years, and we are excited to see an increased emphasis on active transportation, public health, social equity and environmental justice in this plan update. We have been attending public hearings on the RTP/SCS throughout January, and will be submitting a formal comment letter by the deadline. Check back to this blog in a few weeks to see our final comment letter!
