Notice of Public Workshops and Public Hearings - Draft 2050 Regional Transportation Plan

Notice is hereby given that SANDAG will hold Public Workshops and Public Hearings in June to secure public comment on the Draft 2050 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), its Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS), the Draft Air Quality Conformity Determination (AQCD), the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR), and the Draft Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) Methodology and Allocation.

• The Draft 2050 RTP maps out an integrated, multi-modal transportation system for the San Diego region. The RTP is designed to maximize transit enhancements, provide express lanes, integrate biking and walking, and promote programs to manage demand and increase efficiency.

• The SCS seeks to guide how we use land, develop housing, and plan transportation. in such a way that the region reduces per-capita greenhouse gas emissions to state-mandated levels.

• The Draft AQCD demonstrates that the Draft 2050 RTP conforms to the State Implementation Plan for air quality.

• The Draft EIR provides an analysis of potential environmental impacts related to the implementation of the 2050 RTP.

• The RHNA determines the total number of housing units that the 18 cities and the County of San Diego should plan for in the 2013 – 2020 housing elements of their general plans. The Draft RHNA Methodology and Allocation distributes the region’s housing needs to each of the 19 jurisdictions in four income categories: very low, low, moderate, and above moderate.
