Report: TransNet Today

Report_Cover_Image.jpgOn July 15, 2015, Circulate San Diego published "TransNet Today: Keeping faith with the voters while achieving the region's transportation goals."

This report makes the following findings:

(1)    SANDAG’s Draft 2015 Regional Plan is inadequately designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and promote health, equity, and economic development.

(2)    SANDAG must shift priorities toward transit and active transportation to maintain the region’s ability to compete for federal and state transportation funds.

(3)    SANDAG has the flexibility to advance a number of transit and active transportation projects in the Regional Plan without needing to amend TransNet.

As SANDAG makes its plans to invest in the future of San Diego’s transportation system, it faces the same challenges that other regions throughout the state and the country are grappling with including maintaining rapidly aging infrastructure, serving the changing needs and preferences of residents, and addressing sustainability, health, the economy, and equity.

Policy Letter: Comments on Draft Environmental Impact Report for SANDAG's 2015 Draft Regional Plan

Summary of Letter:

SANDAG has the authority to advance transit and active transportation projects on a more accelerated schedule than what is called for by the 2015 Draft Regional Plan (“the Plan”), and in a manner that is consistent with the TransNet Extension Ordinance approved by voters in 2004.

However, none of the more transit-friendly alternatives analyzed by SANDAG are financially feasible to implement.

The failure of the DEIR to consider even one financially feasible alternative does not satisfy the two core functions of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), to ensure informed decision making by the SANDAG Board, and to foster public participation. SANDAG’s DEIR is therefore insufficient and invalid under California law.
