The U.S. Conference of Mayors is conducting a critical affordability survey of the average annual household costs of providing drinking water, sanitary sewers, combined storm and sanitary sewers and flood control systems in our communities. The U.S. Conference of Mayors will be using this information to inform members of Congress on the real costs to cities of operating and maintaining the nation’s critical utility systems. The U.S. Conference of Mayors is currently working with members of Congress on potential legislation, including guidance on the affordability of federal mandates and providing additional funding to communities.

In order to gather this information, cities are being asked to complete a brief survey of the water costs in your community. This survey can be accessed here:

Alternatively, a hard copy of the survey (attached) can be completed and emailed to A sample completed survey and sample results are attached. To see if your city has already completed the survey visit the SGVCOG website.

This summer, join, Go Human -- SCAG’s award-winning traffic safety and active transportation encouragement program -- as we will be hosting 15 bicycle rodeos and safety programming booths for kids in Los Angeles County and Orange County. Bike rodeos, or bicycle skills workshops for kids, provide opportunities to learn safety tips, build bicycling skills and increase kids’ confidence on a bike. League Certified Instructors will teach helmet fitting, ABC Quick Checks, how to cross the street safely, bike handling skills, yielding and more. Through games, like Find the Hazard and Spinner trivia, as well as bicycle courses, kids experience hands-on learning and education (with friendly support from safety costume characters).

SCAG’s Regional Council today adopted the 2016 RTP/SCS Amendment #2 and the 2017 FTIP Consistency Amendment #17-07, including the associated transportation conformity determination. This update to the 2016 RTP/SCS was initiated as a result of the passage of Measure M, the Los Angeles County sales tax measure approved by voters in November 2016. The majority of changes in the amendment include updates to projects as a result of the extended funding, as well as several new transportation improvements. The 2016 RTP/SCS Amendment #2 will be submitted to FHWA/FTA for their approval. For more information, visit our 2016 RTP/SCS website.
