Public Participation Plan


The awareness and involvement of interested persons in governmental processes are critical to successful regional transportation planning and programming. When the public is engaged in the process, their feedback helps ensure projects address community needs. Likewise, the public gains a better understanding of the tradeoffs and constraints associated with transportation planning. The Public Participation Plan serves as a guide for SCAG’s public involvement process as well as the continuing, comprehensive and coordinated planning process among the stakeholders to ensure the ongoing opportunity for broad-based participation in the development and review of regional plans and programs.

SCAG Public Participation Plan

SCAG is in the process of updating our Public Participation Plan, and we would like to hear from you! Help us refine our public engagement processes and identify areas for improvement.

SCAG’s planning work serves a large and diverse region and relies on public participation as an essential component of our planning process. SCAG’s Public Participation Plan was last updated in 2018, and as we prepare for the development of the next Connect SoCal, the 2024 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy, we want to ensure that our approach to public engagement is effective and inclusive.

As a regional stakeholder, we would like your feedback on SCAG’s outreach efforts and public participation processes. Please take a moment to help us by filling out this brief survey, which closes Friday, Sept. 24. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
