Sandag Invites Comments on Regional Planning Input

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

The San Diego Association of Governments, also known as Sandag, is inviting the public to review and comment on a draft public involvement plan, geared to engaging stakeholders over the next two years in the formation of San Diego County’s 2050 regional development plan.

The involvement plan is available for review at Sandag.org, according to a statement from the regional planning agency. Comments should be directed to David Hicks, at david.hicks@sandag.org.

Sandag is working with county and local community officials to develop a long-range regional plan, covering issues including land use, transportation, infrastructure and housing. Based on state and federal guidelines, the Sandag board is expected to formally adopt the regional plan in 2015.

The public involvement plan includes a series of workshops, the use of social media and other practices to gather input over the next two years. Outreach efforts will include consultation with Native American tribes and partnerships with community-based organizations to engage low-income and minority populations.

The review period on the involvement plan runs through Feb. 7.
