The Proposed 2012-2035 RTP/SCS provides land use and transportation recommendations to help achieve a coordinated balance of land uses and transportation improvements such that vehicle trips and vehicle trip lengths are reduced and land is used efficiently and sustainably, thereby minimizing energy and water consumption. The 2012-2035 RTP/SCS contains transportation and urban form strategies that encourage compact growth, increased jobs/housing balance and transit-oriented development, where feasible, in all parts of the region.
The Draft PEIR will be available on SCAG's Web site at www.scag.ca.gov/peir <http://www.scag.ca.gov/peir.>
