NOP - Notice of Preperation

Document Description
Pursuant to federal and state planning requirements, SCAG updates and adopts a long-range regional transportation plan every four years. SCAG's last Plan was adopted in 2016 and an updated Plan is required to be adopted by April 2020. Connect SoCal will outline the region's goals and policies for meeting current and future mobility needs, provide a foundation for transportation decisions by local, regional and state officials that are ultimately aimed at achieving a coordinated and balanced transportation system. Connect SoCal will also identify the region's transportation needs and issues, recommended actions, programs, and a list of projects to address the needs to consistent with adopted regional policies and goals, and documents the financial resources needed to implement Connect SoCal. It is important to note that SCAG does not implement individual projects in the RTP, as they will be implemented by local and state jurisdictions, and other agencies. SCAG has already initiated the development of Connect SoCal and is working closely with County Transportation Commissions to compile a regional project list that will build upon the list identified in the 2016 RTP. Note: See NOP for full description.
