Comprehensive Land Use and Regional Growth Projects
Regional Comprehensive Plan
The Regional Comprehensive Plan (RCP) serves as the long-term planning framework for the San Diego region. It provides a broad context in which local and regional decisions can be made that move the region toward a sustainable future – a future with more choices and opportunities for all residents of the region.
The RCP better integrates our local land use and transportation decisions, and focuses attention on where and how we want to grow. The RCP contains an incentive-based approach to encourage and channel growth into existing and future urban areas and smart growth communities.
The final RCP, Executive Summary, final Program Environmental Impact Report (EIR), RCP technical appendices, and RCP comments and responses are available below in PDF format.
Questions or comments on the RCP can be directed to Carolina Ilic, RCP Project Manager, at email@example.com or 401 B Street, Suite 800, San Diego, CA 92101 or (619) 699-1905 (fax). To order bound copies or a CD of the RCP and/or its EIR, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
SANDAG is currently working on an effort to merge the RCP with the 2050 Regional Transportation Plan and Sustainable Communities Strategy. This effort is known as San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan and is scheduled for adoption in 2015.

RCP Performance Monitoring
Monitoring our progress is an important element of RCP implementation. To date, SANDAG has produced five reports, an initial report that established a baseline against which to monitor future progress, and annual monitoring reports in 2007, 2008, and 2009, as well as the 2010-2011 and 2012-2013 biennial reports. These reports and their individual chapter files are posted below in PDF format. Additional information is also available at sandag.org/rcpmonitoring.
