SCAG is in the process of updating our Public Participation Plan, and we would like to hear from you to help us refine our public engagement processes and identify areas for improvement. SCAG’s planning work serves a large and diverse region, and relies on public participation as an essential component of our planning process. SCAG’s Public Participation Plan was last updated in March 2014, and as we prepare for the development of the 2020 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy, we want to ensure that our approach to public engagement is effective and inclusive.

As a regional stakeholder, we would like your feedback on the SCAG’s outreach efforts and public participation processes. Please take a moment to help us by filling out a brief survey. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Thank you in advance for your participation. If you have any questions, please contact Margaret de Larios at delarios@scag.ca.gov.

Benefit-cost analysis monetizes the value of benefits over the life of transportation projects and compares against project costs to assess cost-effectiveness, and is increasingly being utilized for project evaluation and selection—from TIGER and INFRA grants funded by USDOT to the programs funded under Senate Bill 1 (Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017), including the Active Transportation Program, the Local Partnership Program, the Trade Corridor Enhancement Program, and the Solutions for Congested Corridors Program. If you are applying for project funding, including a benefit-cost analysis in your proposal may give your project an advantage.

To assist prospective funding applicants, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will conduct two upcoming training sessions on the California Life-Cycle Benefit/Cost Analysis (Cal B/C). The first session will be held on Dec. 21, from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., at Caltrans Headquarters. This traning will be webcast live at http://ctmedia.dot.ca.gov/webcast/live/live_event.asp?stream=calsta.

A second session is planned for Jan. 16, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., at Caltrans District 7. For more information, contact Rose Agacer at (916) 651-6014.

Project Applications due to California Transportation Commission January 30, 2018.

The California Transportation Commission (CTC), in adopting Final Guidelines for the Trade Corridor Enhancement Program, has announced availability of approximately $1.3 billion in federal and state funds for corridor-based freight projects nominated by local agencies and the State. As noted in the guidelines, project applications for the 2018 Trade Corridor Enhancement Program are due to the CTC by Tuesday, January 30, 2018. The guidelines also specify that SCAG (in its role as a Metropolitan Planning Organization) is responsible for compiling project nominations from eligible agencies in Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties and confirming consistency with the 2016 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy. As such, SCAG prepared a 2018 TCEP nomination form with further guidance on the application process for project nominations from the SCAG region.
