As the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) prepares to develop the 2016–2040 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy, the agency is updating its Public Participation Plan and invites your input.

Consistent with federal and state requirements, SCAG regularly reviews and evaluates its public participation and outreach activities to ensure that the public and interested parties are given early, meaningful and substantive opportunities to be involved in SCAG’s decision-making. To that end, SCAG released the 2014 Draft Public Participation Plan on January 22, 2014 for a mandatory 45–day public review and comment period, which ends at 5:00 p.m. on March 7, 2014.

SCAG invites your review and comments on the draft plan.
