Connecting education and economic development is essential for the state and the region to fully emerge from the Great Recession, according to economists and regional leaders at SCAG's Fourth Annual Economic Recovery & Job Creation Summit. Recent U.S. Census data shows that 3.2 million people in the six-county SCAG region lived in poverty in 2012, up from 1.9 million in 1990. In addition to the poverty report, the Summit also released economic outlook reports for Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura and Imperial Counties, and the Inland Empire. For additional details, please download the attached press release.

The Southern California Association of Governments is in receipt of the 2015 Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) Amendment #15-09 for Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura Counties. The Public Review period has been revised to accomodate comment received on June 30, 2015 from the United States Department of Transportation to add one project. The Public Review period will restart on July 1, 2015 and will conclude at 5:00 p.m. on July 10, 2015.

A copy of the Project Listing is located on the SCAG FTIP website Proposed Amendment link at http://ftip.scag.ca.gov/Pages/2015/proposed.aspx.

Please note that some of the changes or project additions may be for projects funded with Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5307 funds. This public involvement opportunity is provided to meet the public involvement requirements for the program of projects.

SCAG is relying on the public participation process for the FTIP to satisfy FTA public participation requirements for the transit program of projects.

Subject to revisions to address comments received during the public review period, the 2015 FTIP as revised by Proposed Amendment #15-09 will be the final program unless amended, and a final notice will not be published.

If you have any questions or comments concerning this amendment, contact Maria I. Lopez at (213) 236-1806 no later than 5:00 p.m. on July 10, 2015.

As part of a Regional Active Transportation Safety and Encouragement Campaign, SCAG is offering an opportunity for communities to host events that inspire more people to walk and bike through education, encouragement and a "sneakers-on" experience. For one day or up to one month during May (Bike Month) 2016, SCAG will support local communities in transforming streets through temporary improvements (or pop-ups), street "festivals" and other fun activities that increase awareness of active transportation and complete street concepts. For more information, check out the call for projects application.
