Hello Southern California Colleagues,
We hope you received the notification about November 3rd’s SCAG Regional Council meeting and encourage you to take action on the items mentioned within the alert. As a point of clarification, the message and sentiment below are reflective of Healthy Places Coalition’s position on the current draft of the Sustainable Communities Strategy and not that of MoveLA . Move LA supports the tripling of bike and pedestrian funds to $6 billion as designated under the Preferred Alternative and believes this is a signification step and commends SCAG for the increase. In addition, Move LA supports including a number of more robust strategies (such as raising bike and pedestrian funding to $10 billion) in Alternative C which will allow them to be further evaluated for possible inclusion in the final plan.
