On Thursday, Dec. 5, SCAG and the Southern California Leadership Council hosted the 10th annual Southern California Economic Summit at The L.A. Grand Hotel Downtown in downtown Los Angeles.
The program dug into the major economic levers of the Connect SoCal plan, SCAG’s 2020 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy. From generating hundreds of thousands of new jobs to creating efficiency gains for shipping and travel, realizing the goal of a strong regional transportation system has economic benefits for all of the region’s 19 million residents. The program also tackled the question of how our region is going to address the growing challenge of housing affordability.
