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.

LOS ANGELES – The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) Thursday approved more than $40 million in funding for active transportation projects in the six-county region.

The funding, part of the $100 million a year being directed specifically to active transportation across California as part of Senate Bill 1, provides another major boost to local efforts to increase safety and access for people walking and biking. The SB1 funding nearly doubles the amount available for active transportation investments, and its quick disbursement will allow projects originally scheduled to start as late as 2021 to commence construction later this year.

Under the plan approved Thursday by SCAG’s Regional Council, $38.6 million will go to implement active transportation projects in the six counties during the 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 fiscal years. An additional $1.8 million will be used to help fund the planning of new projects.

Preparing for the 2020 RTP/SCS: Local Input & Envisioning Process

Southern California will be facing new challenges in the development of the 2020 Regional Transportation Plan and Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS) - principally transformational technologies in the transportation and employment sectors, new greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets from the California Air Resources Board (CARB), new Federal Highway Administration planning requirements, MAP 21 performance metrics/goals, and a concurrent Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) cycle. Given these factors, it will be important to establish a solid baseline of existing policies and plans to understand how Southern California can accommodate future growth and thrive in the coming decades. Devising approaches for the upcoming Plan will also require a great deal of collaboration amongst regional stakeholders and resource support for local jurisdictions.

Attend this upcoming Toolbox Tuesday to learn about SCAG’s Bottom-Up Local Input and Envisioning Process, which will guide participation from local jurisdictions, elected officials, and other stakeholders in the formulation of Southern California’s next RTP/SCS. This training is aimed at staff from local jurisdictions and will provide background information on the process - including an overview of the base information that will undergo review from cities, towns, and counties; instructions on using SCAG’s Scenario Planning Model – Data Management Site; resource support for local jurisdictions; and, opportunities to get involved in collaborative scenario planning that will be underway later in the Plan development cycle. Staff can attend in person, at SCAG’s video conferencing sites, or remotely through webinar. Sign up today!
