What is the Sustainable Communities Strategy?

The State of California legislature passed Senate Bill (SB) 375 in 2008, which requires all of our state’s metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), including SBCAG, to develop a Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS) when they update their Regional Transportation Plan. The primary goal of SB 375 and the SCS is to coordinate transportation and land-use planning at the local and regional level in ways that will reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions and help meet important public needs. The SCS always includes recommendations for land-use and transportation that are consistent with predictions about future growth and housing needs in the region.
