The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) is seeking proposals for an exhibit highlighting student planning projects at its 50th Anniversary Regional Conference & General Assembly, May 7 - 8 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs in Palm Desert. As part of the agency’s regular event programming that will highlight outstanding planning projects in the region, SCAG will host its first student project exhibit of exceptional projects in the discipline of urban and regional planning. Selected students will have the opportunity to showcase their projects on Thursday, May 7th to an audience of more than 1,000 elected officials, planning practitioners and various public, private and non-profit stakeholders.
SCAG is requesting students to submit abstracts for student-led projects that demonstrate innovative solutions to sustainability-related planning issues on a local or regional scale. Eligible submittals include any applied projects or research papers and will be evaluated on the following criteria:
- Sustainability: Promotes principles relevant to one or more sustainability principles (integrated planning, green region initiative and active transportation)
- Innovation: Introduces new concept or challenges or improves upon current planning processes
- Transferability: Strategies/concepts that can be applied to different locations or programs
- Feasibility: Project has potential to be realistically implemented
- Presentation: Excellence in writing, visual content and overall organization
Submissions will be accepted from students currently enrolled at any university or college within the SCAG region (Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties).

The Southern California Association of Governments is in receipt of the 2015 Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) Amendment #15-04 for Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura Counties.

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.
