SCAG headquarters (Board Room) with videoconferencing sites as below.

The Governors Office of Planning and Research (OPR) would like to invite you to participate in a local government focused discussion of OPRs update to the General Plan Guidelines. The discussion is an opportunity for you to provide OPR with input about the update to the General Plan Guidelines. In particular, OPR will seek input from local governments about how the General Plan Guidelines can be more useful in updating general plans. OPR wants to know what data, maps, and information would be the most helpful to address the statutory requirements for general plans. Additionally, OPR wants to know how an online General Plan Guidelines would be useful. This input will be vital to ensure OPR is providing current, relevant information for use by local governments to prepare and update general plans.

LOS ANGELES – A new report released by the Southern California Association of Governments and the UCLA Institute of Transportation Studies found a dramatic increase in private automobile ownership in Southern California is the main cause of an overall decline in transit ridership.

The report, “Falling Transit Ridership: California and Southern California,” was commissioned by the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) to identify the causes of transit ridership declines in the region, which are part of an overall nationwide trend.

Authored by faculty at the UCLA Institute of Transportation Studies, this new study found that the six-county SCAG region added 2.1 million household vehicles between the years 2000 and 2015, a car increase that nearly quadruples the rate of the preceding decade. The number of vehicles added nearly matches the growth in population during those years.
