Housing & Land Use

Housing and Land Use are essential components of effective regional transportation planning. SCAG’s efforts in planning and policy development include providing a forum for policy dialogue, information sharing, technical analysis and consensus on critical mobility, housing and natural resource issues confronting the region. SCAG prepares a fair share projection and distribution of future housing needs that support regional transportation and environmental planning and assists communities in the update of the housing element of local general plans pursuant to specific mandates in State law.​
