This subcommittee will provide guidance on the priorities and strategies for Connect SoCal 2024, reflecting the rapidly evolving developments across the region-specific to the future of mobility and associated implications for public policy.
This subcommittee will identify opportunities to advance racial equity through the policies and strategies in Connect SoCal and guide how our planning and investments over the next 30 years can address and rectify the effects of racially discriminatory policies in SCAG’s environmental justice communities.
This subcommittee will advance the direction set in the SCAG Regional Council Resolution on Climate Change Action to consider opportunities for enhanced conservation and how can Connect SoCal support our communities in adapting to changing conditions or mitigating risks to become more resilient.
The purpose of the Regional Advance Mitigation Planning – Advisory Task Group was 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 advised on a white paper on Regional Advance Mitigation Planning (RAMP). The group approved the RAMP Policy Framework and White Paper on November 16, 2022, and disbanded upon reporting to the Regional Council and Energy & Environment Committee meetings. On February 2, 2023, SCAG’s Regional Council approved the Regional Advance Mitigation Program (RAMP) Policy Framework and White Paper.
