Public Notice - Draft 2021 Regional Plan, Draft Air Quality Conformity Analysis, Public Meetings

The 2021 Regional Plan prioritizes quality of life, social equity, and environmental preservation. By using the most advanced data modeling ever used in a Regional Plan, SANDAG is proposing a transformative new transportation system for the San Diego Region that can improve the lives of all San Diegans. The draft 2021 Regional Plan incorporates the region’s Regional Transportation Plan, Sustainable Communities Strategy, and Regional Comprehensive Plan, and also includes the draft Air Quality Conformity Determination demonstrating the 2021 Regional Plan’s conformity with the State Implementation Plans for air quality, in accordance with the Transportation Conformity Requirements in 40 C.F.R. 51 and 93, as required by the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments.

SANDAG has scheduled virtual open houses to provide information about policy choices and issues considered in the draft 2021 Regional Plan and to accept additional public comment. The virtual open houses are scheduled for:

  • Tuesday, June 15, 2021
  • Wednesday, June 16, 2021
  • Tuesday, June 22, 2021

In addition to the virtual open houses, two virtual public hearings also will be held on:
