SCAG Releases Draft of 2024 Transportation/Sustainability Plan
The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) recently released its draft Connect SoCal 2024 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy, outlining direction for the region to meet federal transportation air quality standards and state greenhouse gas emission targets through $750 billion in transportation investments and a regional development pattern.
Now available for public review and comment through Jan. 12, 2024, the plan update includes new strategies for addressing the housing crisis and homelessness, adapting to climate change and investing in underserved communities.
“This plan incorporates local input more so than in past cycles,” said Art Brown, SCAG’s Regional Council president. “This can help us move together as a region toward improving our transportation network and meeting our sustainability goals.”
More than 2,000 projects are included in the plan. Founded in 1965, SCAG includes Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Riverside, San Bernardino and Imperial Counties.
