Document Description
SANDAG is a regional planning agency and Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) composed of 18 cities and the county government within the San Diego region. SANDAG must prepare a Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) every 4 years (Government Code Section 65080 et seq.; 23 United States Code Section 134). The current, approved RTP is the 2021 Regional Plan. The RTP must include a Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS) consisting of land use, housing, and transportation strategies that, if implemented, would allow the region to meet its regional targets for greenhouse gas emissions reductions from passenger vehicle use established by the California Air Resources Board (Sustainable Communities and Climate Protection Act of 2008, Senate Bill 375, Chapter 728, Statutes of 2008). In September 2022, the SANDAG Board of Directors directed staff to prepare an Amendment to the 2021 Regional Plan without the regional road usage charge (RUC). The Amendment removes the regional road usage charge (RUC), updates the financial strategies used in the 2021 Regional Plan, and assesses the region’s continued ability to achieve the greenhouse gas emissions target set by the California Air Resources Board as well as federal air quality standards. The proposed Amendment does not include any transportation network changes, new construction, or changes to the 2021 Regional Plan SCS land use pattern. The Amendment meets the requirements of federal and state transportation planning law, and also meets the requirements for the Regional Comprehensive Plan for the San Diego Region established by state law (Assembly Bill 361, Chapter 508, Statutes of 2003).
