 Public Comments and Responses Now Available

SCAG thanks the many individuals and organizations that provided comments on the Draft 2016 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (2016 RTP/SCS), our long-range visioning plan that balances future mobility and housing needs with economic, environmental and public health goals, and the Draft Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR).

We wanted to share with you that all public comments and staff responses related to the Draft 2016 RTP/SCS and the Draft PEIR are now available online. Over the 60-day comment period (Dec. 4, 2015 – Feb. 1, 2016), SCAG received a total of 158 verbal and written comment submissions on the Draft 2016 RTP/SCS and 81 comment submissions on the Draft PEIR. The documents now available include a listing of comments alongside staff responses as well as separate volumes containing source letters and submissions by organization and individuals and transcripts of the public hearings. In future editions of the Plan, these documents will be included as addendums to the Public Participation & Consultation Appendix for the 2016 RTP/SCS.

We appreciate your feedback on the Draft Plan. On Thursday, March 3, SCAG staff presented to the Regional Council a recommended approach to addressing comments in the Plan. A new Proposed Final 2016 RTP/SCS and Proposed Final PEIR will be presented to the Joint Meeting of the Policy Committees on Thursday, March 24, for consideration and recommendation to the Regional Council for approval. At the end of this week, we’ll send out another update email with links to download the Proposed Final 2016 RTP/SCS and Proposed Final PEIR.

Thanks again for your participation!
