The Governors Office of Planning and Research (OPR) would like to invite you to participate in a local government focused discussion of OPRs update to the General Plan Guidelines. The discussion is an opportunity for you to provide OPR with input about the update to the General Plan Guidelines. In particular, OPR will seek input from local governments about how the General Plan Guidelines can be more useful in updating general plans. OPR wants to know what data, maps, and information would be the most helpful to address the statutory requirements for general plans. Additionally, OPR wants to know how an online General Plan Guidelines would be useful. This input will be vital to ensure OPR is providing current, relevant information for use by local governments to prepare and update general plans.

LOS ANGELES – The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) on Thursday praised the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for adopting ambitious and achievable climate targets, hailing the vote as a win for regional collaboration and long-term sustainability in the state.

Since Senate Bill 375 was passed in 2009, CARB has set and periodically updated targets at both the state and regional level for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. CARB has been working on an update to the target for the past year and, after a long collaborative process with state and regional leaders, has chosen an ambitious and achievable target for Southern California’s emission reduction.
