Local Input Process for Towns, Cities and Counties
In preparing the Connect SoCal vision, the Southern California
Association of Governments engages in a Bottom-Up Local Input and
Envisioning Process to solicit information from local cities,
counties and subregions on their most current land use,
anticipated population/household/employment growth, resource
areas, sustainability practices, and local transit-supportive
measures to help understand how the region is growing and the
extent to which we are meeting our climate goals.
This page is for local jurisdictions in Southern California to
access and review SCAG’s data sets that are part of the Local
Information from local cities was used to develop and evaluate
potential future development scenarios for Southern California,
and their respective impacts on greenhouse gas emissions. Input
from jurisdictions on locally anticipated household and
population growth was also used by SCAG as part of the regional
housing need determination process with the California Department
of Housing and Community Development (HCD).
For ease of review, core data items have been mapped in draft
format and assembled in an individual map book for each local
jurisdiction (available below). Jurisdictional and neighborhood
level growth datasets utilized for Connect SoCal were provided to
jurisdictions through the Scenario Planning Model – Data
For information on how entitled projects were considered in
Connect SoCal, please see the “Regional Entitlements Database”
that includes mapped entitlements as well as a summary of how
project phasing was factored into the growth datasets. A detailed
methodology of Connect SoCal’s Growth Vision is available
additionally, and was provided to local jurisdictions in fall
2019 then subsequently in February 2020, after the Final Proposed
dataset was updated.

Please note that SCAG’s draft data is undergoing refinement based
on feedback from local jurisdictions, and material included here
is subject to revision; inquiries for official data should be
