SCAG headquarters (Board Room) with videoconferencing sites as below.

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.

The Southern California Association of Governments is in receipt of the 2015 Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) Amendment #15-06 for Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura Counties. The Public Review period has been revised to accomodate comment letter received on April 21, 2015 from Orange County Transportation Authority requesting the addition of four projects into Amendment #15-06 (FTIP Project IDs ORA030605, ORA030605A, ORA080909 and ORA111801). The Public Review period will restart on April 23, 2015 and will conclude at 5:00 p.m. on May 4, 2015.

A copy of the Project Listing is located on the SCAG FTIP website Proposed Amendment link at http://ftip.scag.ca.gov/Pages/2015/proposed.aspx.

Please note that some of the changes or project additions may be for projects funded with Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5307 funds. This public involvement opportunity is provided to meet the public involvement requirements for the program of projects.

SCAG is relying on the public participation process for the FTIP to satisfy FTA public participation requirements for the transit program of projects.

Subject to revisions to address comments received during the public review period, the 2015 FTIP as revised by Proposed Amendment #15-04 will be the final program unless amended, and a final notice will not be published.

If you have any questions or comments concerning this amendment, contact Maria I. Lopez at (213) 236-1806 no later than 5:00 p.m. on May 4, 2015.

The California Debt and Investment Advisory Commission (CDIAC) is hosting a webinar series designed to guide public agencies in the development and management of an investment portfolio. Public fund management in California allows for the investment officer to select instruments set forth in government code. Each investment instrument comes with a differing level of risk, requiring public investors to undertake a full assessment of each. These webinars will examine each instrument type, review the statutory authority, and analyze how the investment’s features may or may not achieve a local agency’s investment policy objectives. The webinar series is as follows:

  • Webinar 1: Treasuries – May 21
  • Webinar 2: Agencies – June 17
  • Webinar 3: Municipals – June 24
  • Webinar 4: Money Markets
    • Part 1: Banker’s Acceptances, Commercial Paper – July 8
    • Part 2: Certificates of Deposit (CDs), Deposit Placement Services and Collateralized Bank Deposits – July 22
    • Part 3: Repos, Reverse Purchase Agreements and Securities Lending – August 5
  • Webinar 5: Corporates – August 19
  • Webinar 6: Asset-Backed Securities, Mortgage-Backed Securities, Collateralized Mortgage Obligations – September 2
