President SCAG Regional Council
SCAG, 818 W. 7th St., 12th Floor, LA, CA 90017
RTP@SCAG.ca.gov I am writing to support the draft RTP/SCS that will be voted on at the SCAG Regional Council on April 4. I support the RTP because it shows Southern California is moving in a new direction: towards more transit, more walking and biking, and revitalizing neighborhoods around transit. I am proud that the RTP/SCS meets the SB 375 target for greenhouse gas reductions in 2020 and exceeds the 2035 target; achieves Clean Air Act conformity; reduces vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and traffic congestion over much of the region. I understand that the RTP/SCS process will repeat in four years, so we have room to set up an even better 2016 RTP. I urge you to expand funding for transit, Metrolink service, bus rapid transit, bicycling and pedestrians; create a tighter link between transit and land use; increase efforts to reduce GHGs and emissions from freight; step up the environmental justice monitoring; and work towards a better jobs-housing fit. Thank you for your hard work in bringing this RTP/SCS forward.
