Public workshops to focus on regional smart growth
The 18 cities and the county working through SANDAG have an ambitious plan to better connect transportation to jobs and homes in the San Diego region. With broad support from residents, community and business leaders, and the region’s elected officials, the SANDAG Regional Comprehensive Plan (RCP) focuses more of our growth and infrastructure investments in the urban areas to better connect residents to the region’s transportation system and to preserve thousands of acres of open space.
Already, neighborhoods are benefiting from smart growth investments. SANDAG has awarded $19 million to 14 smart growth projects. Another $1 million is being awarded this spring for habitat conservation.
SANDAG is now working with the cities and the county on a 'Smart Growth Concept Map' to identify locations that can support smart growth and transportation investments. This map will serve as the foundation for refining the regional transit network and identifying other transportation needs in the long-range Regional Transportation Plan. SANDAG is scheduled to adopt the Smart Growth Concept Map and the updated Regional Transportation Plan in mid-2007.
Help make smart growth work
Join your fellow residents, community leaders, and SANDAG officials at a workshop near where you live or work. In these workshops participants will consider locations where smart growth development can work; discuss transportation improvements needed to support smart growth development; talk about what smart growth should look like now and in the future; and identify resources to make smart growth work in our communities.
