Overview

Regional Advance Mitigation Planning – Advisory Task Group

The purpose of the Regional Advance Mitigation Planning – Advisory Task Group is to establish a policy framework for advance mitigation in the SCAG region, and to ensure the SoCal Greenprint is aligned with related policy objectives. This would be accomplished during the current pause on SoCal Greenprint implementation. In addition to establishing a policy framework, the group will advise on a white paper on Regional Advance Mitigation Planning (RAMP). The group will disband upon reporting to the Regional Council and Energy & Environment Committee meetings, which is expected to occur in summer/fall 2022.
