SANDAG Seeks Public Input on Future of Transportation in Region

Seven Mayors and Three City Councilmembers to Host Conversations with Residents about the 2019 Regional Plan

October 12, 2018 - As part of the development of San Diego Forward: The 2019-2050 Regional Plan, SANDAG has launched an interactive survey and will hold a series of public meetings hosted by elected officials from throughout the region in October to gather input on three initial “network concepts.” This input will be used to develop draft scenarios that will ultimately lead to a single transportation network to be included in the Regional Plan.

“This is a key first step in the process of deciding what types of projects, programs, and technologies we will invest in now and in the future,” said SANDAG Chair and Del Mar City Councilmember Terry Sinnott. “Now is the time to take part in the conversation about how we will get around in the future – so come to the open house, join a community conversation with local elected officials, take our survey, and give us your input.”

Based on input received earlier in the process, SANDAG identified several transportation and quality of life priorities, including congestion relief, climate change and the environment, emerging technologies, healthy communities, and housing, jobs, and the economy.

These priorities were used to develop three distinct network concepts for the 2019 Regional Plan – Shared Mobility, Connected Corridors, and Policy Possibilities. The network concepts include a mix of projects, technology, programs, and policies that address transportation needs for people and goods in our region through 2050.

Input on these concepts will lead to development of more refined “network scenarios” – specific combinations of projects and programs – for review later this winter. Early next year, the SANDAG Board will choose a single, preferred network scenario, which will form the core of the 2019 Regional Plan.

There are three primary ways to provide input on the network concepts during the month of October. Take a brief interactive survey. Attend the open house. Join one of the community conversations hosted by elected officials around the region.
