A pair of workshops are scheduled for next week to help the San Diego Association of Governments gain public input on transportation scenarios that are under consideration for its regional plan.
The planning organization's long-term blueprint for the region's future, the San Diego Forward regional plan, is scheduled for adoption in mid-2015. Combining and updating what had previously been SANDAG's two big-picture planning documents — the Regional Comprehensive Plan and the Regional Transportation Plan — the new regional plan will govern the area's investment choices on transportation infrastructure through 2050.
Workshop attendees will learn about the performance of two scenarios in terms of mobility, air quality and other factors, SANDAG said in a release. They'll also hear about potential transit, highway, pedestrian and bicycle projects that could be built over the next few decades. The workshops are open to the public at no charge. Registrations can be completed by visiting sdforward.com.
The workshops will be held Aug. 4, first from 11:30 a.m.to 2 p.m. and then from 5:30 to 8 p.m., in the Garcia Room at the Caltrans District 11 headquarters, 4050 Taylor St.
