Every four years, the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) updates its visionary plan for the future of the region, Connect SoCal. The strategies outlined in this plan affect how everyone in Southern California lives, works and plays.

Meeting federal and state requirements for infrastructure and sustainable planning, Connect SoCal outlines strategies to help our communities thrive when it comes to mobility, housing, economy and the environment. This vision acts as a compass to help communities evolve in a way that reflects the collective needs of our residents.

How Can You Help?

SCAG’s process to develop Connect SoCal is an opportunity for everyone in our six-county region to share their thoughts on important issues that affect our everyday lives.

  • How can we best get around?
  • How can we meet the housing needs of our communities?
  • How can we ensure that our region develops in a way that meets the demands of the future?
  • How can we remain healthy, strong and prosperous?

Connect SoCal powers SCAG’s work to advocate for the region, foster collaboration, and support local planning with tools and resources—connecting initiatives at higher levels of government down to the local level. In short, SCAG works with the cities, counties and other agencies that represent you—and they, in turn, lead their own conversations with you about what our communities will become.

The survey is now closed. Thanks to all who provided input!

What happens next?

We are reviewing and analyzing the input collected alongside a technical analysis to prepare the draft Connect SoCal 2024. We will release the draft Connect SoCal 2024 in fall 2023 for public review and comment.
