Yesterday SCAG’s Transportation Committee approved the release of the Draft 2016-2040 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (2016 RTP/SCS) Amendment #1 and Draft 2017 Federal Transportation Improvement Program (2017 FTIP) Consistency Amendment #17-03 for public review and comment. The 30-day public review and comment period begins today, January 6, 2017, and ends on February 6, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. Visit the Draft 2016 RTP/SCS Amendment #1 to download and review a PDF of the amendment document. The Draft 2017 FTIP Amendment #17-03 is also available online here. There are three ways to submit comments: Send your comments via email; mail us a letter; or attend our public hearing on January 18, 3:00 p.m. Additional information is available on the Draft Amendment #1 webpage.

At the SCAG Transportation Committee (TC) meeting Jan. 5, SCAG staff will request authorization to release the Draft 2016 RTP/SCS Amendment #1 (and the Draft 2017 FTIP Consistency Amendment No. 17-03, including the Conformity Analysis) for review and comment. The requested 30-day public review period would start Jan. 6, 2017 and end on Feb. 6, 2017.

Last April, the Regional Council adopted the 2016 RTP/SCS as developed and recommended by the TC. In response to requests from several county transportation commissions (CTCs) to amend the 2016 RTP/SCS to reflect additions or changes to project scopes, costs, and/or schedules, over the past few months, SCAG staff has worked with the CTCs to develop an amendment to the 2016 RTP/SCS and a concurrent consistency amendment to the 2017 FTIP.

During the public review period, a public hearing will be held on Jan. 18, 2017 at SCAG’s Los Angeles office with video-conferencing availability from SCAG’s regional offices. The draft amendments will be posted on SCAG’s website and noticed via SCAG’s website, newsletters, social media, and meeting announcements. The public will be encouraged to provide comments at the public hearing and through formal written comments, submitted either by U.S. mail or by email (rtpscs@scag.ca.gov). Upon completion of the public review period, SCAG staff will provide responses to all comments and present a proposed final 2016 RTP/SCS Amendment No. 1 and 2017 FTIP Consistency Amendment No. 17- 03 to the TC for a recommendation of its approval at the March 2, 2017 meeting and to the RC for its approval at the April 6, 2017 meeting.
