As the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) prepares to develop the 2016–2040 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy, the agency is updating its Public Participation Plan and invites your input.

Consistent with federal and state requirements, SCAG regularly reviews and evaluates its public participation and outreach activities to ensure that the public and interested parties are given early, meaningful and substantive opportunities to be involved in SCAG’s decision-making. To that end, SCAG released the 2014 Draft Public Participation Plan on January 22, 2014 for a mandatory 45–day public review and comment period, which ends at 5:00 p.m. on March 7, 2014.

SCAG invites your review and comments on the draft plan.

Anaheim and Yorba Linda, Calif. – OC Parks, the City of Yorba Linda, the City of Anaheim and the Go Human campaign invite area residents and visitors to bike, walk, skate or roll to Connect the Loop, an active-streets community event on Saturday, June 10, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., that will allow residents to preview street improvements coming to the area.

The improvements serve to close a critical gap in the OC Loop, a 66-mile network of comfortable trails around Orange County. The new project connects the El Cajon Trail with the Santa Ana River Trail, using innovative separated bikeway facilities along community streets.

At the event, residents and visitors will get to test out temporary street features that make walking and biking safer and more enjoyable, such as a two-way parking-protected bike lane and an improved shared-use path. Connect the Loop will bring friends and neighbors together to enjoy music, food trucks, entertainment, family-friendly activities, a free children’s bike rodeo, giveaways, and more. Those who provide feedback through the Go Human Challenge will also be entered into a raffle for a chance to win bicycles.

The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) today launched “100 Hours,” a public engagement campaign to start a conversation about addressing Los Angeles’ world famous traffic problems with innovative solutions. The name “100 Hours” is derived from INRIX data showing that LA-area drivers now waste 104 hours every year stuck in traffic.

The campaign includes thought-provoking billboards overlooking Los Angeles roadways and freeways, quantifying 100 Hours in personal terms. Some billboards cover key surface streets on the Westside near the 405 Freeway where residents and commuters waste time in traffic traveling at speeds as slow as four miles per hour--walking speed-during peak periods. The 100 Hours discussion will focus on solutions for such traffic hot spots, complementing efforts to improve mass transit systems across the region.
