January 15, 2013 (San Diego)--SANDAG invites the public to review and comment on the draft Public Involvement Plan (PIP) that will be used to support the development of a consolidated regional plan. The review period ends February 7, 2013. Comments should be directed to David Hicks at david.hicks@sandag.org.

The Public Involvement Plan outlines a variety of opportunities for individuals, organizations, agencies, and other stakeholders to provide meaningful input into the regional plan development process. Outreach efforts will include consultation with Native American tribes and partnerships with community-based organizations to engage low-income and minority populations. Furthermore, the plan includes a series of public workshops, use of social media, visualizations, and other best practices for involving the public and receiving input.

The future of the San Diego region is currently guided by two primary long-range planning documents: the Regional Comprehensive Plan and the 2050 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy. In May 2012, the SANDAG Board of Directors approved merging the updates for these plans to give citizens a single, easily accessible document. The new regional plan is scheduled to be adopted in 2015. More information is available at www.sandag.org/regionalplan.


The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) is the San Diego region’s primary public planning, transportation, and research agency, providing the public forum for regional policy decisions about growth, transportation planning and construction, environmental management, housing, open space, energy, public safety, and binational topics. SANDAG is governed by a Board of Directors composed of mayors, council members, and supervisors from each of the region’s 18 cities and the county government.
