Recent events and on-going water resource issues bring into question how our region will ensure adequate water resource to meet the existing demand and to accommodate anticipated growth, which has prompted interest and discussion on broad scientific, technological, and policy responses. SCAG invited a distinguished panel of speakers to discuss long-term water supply and demand, conservation, the California Water Plan and California Water Action Plan, and regional and local water resource issues. This presentation was used by the speakers as part of the panel discussion at the Joint Meeting of the Regional Council and Policy Committee on March 6, 2014.

This presentation, given to the SCAG Transportation Committee on Oct. 3, 2013, provides an overview of bus rapid transit (BRT) projects in the SCAG Region. BRT is providing increased mobility options and improved service along the most frequently traveled corridors. Many transit operators are implementing this service as its benefits include scalability, flexibility and affordability compared to fixed rail.

Highway-rail grade crossings in the SCAG region can be locations with significant safety problems, posing serious risks for collisions between trains and on-road vehicles. Through the Comprehensive Regional Goods Movement Plan and Implementation Strategy effort, SCAG partnered with regional stakeholders to identify over 71 regional grade separations to increase safety, reduce vehicle delay and decrease emissions. In this Oct. 3, 2013 presentation to the Transportation Committee, SCAG Senior Regional Planner Mike Jones describes the recent successes and continuing regional efforts to address highway-rail safety issues through the implementation of grade separations.

The Bicycle Route 66 corridor is part of the regional bikeway network developed as part of the 2012-2035 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy. In this presentation given to the Transportation Committee on Oct. 3, 2013, SCAG Senior Regional Planner Alan Thompson describes the concept plan, which includes potential routes along the corridor, what would be required by cities if they wish to be part of Bike Route 66 and the funding implications.

This presentation was given to the Transportation Committee on Oct. 3, 2013, by SCAG staff and discusses the importance of urban trees to a neighborhood's quality of life. It also discusses sidewalk improvement and funding strategies that, while upgrading sidewalks to current standards, will also help preserve neighborhood trees. The presentation was based on a previous report to the Energy and Environment Committee by Jeremy Klop of Fehr and Peers.
