Southern California Association of Governments

The Southern California Association of Governments is the Metropolitan Planning Organization of six of the ten counties in Southern California, serving Imperial County, Los Angeles County, Orange County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County, Ventura County. San Diego County's MPO is the San Diego Association of Governments, an unrelated agency. SCAG is the largest MPO in the United States, representing over 18.5 million people in an area covering over 38,000 square miles. As the designated MPO, SCAG is mandated by the federal government to research and draw up plans for transportation, growth management, hazardous waste management, air quality. Additional mandates exist at the state level SCAG's policy direction is guided by the 86-member official governing board known as the Regional Council; the Regional Council is composed of 67 Districts that include an elected representative of one or more cities of equal population levels that have a geographic community of interest. Additionally, membership in SCAG's Regional Council includes one representative from each county Board of Supervisors.

SCAG's Regional Council includes one representative of the Southern California Native American Tribal Governments. All members of the Los Angeles City Council are each considered members of the SCAG Regional Council, the Mayor of the City of Los Angeles, serves as the Los Angeles City At-Large Representative; as of December 2014, the SCAG region consists of 191 cities, six counties, one Tribal Government. Members include: The Southern California Association of Governments was formed on October 28, 1965, with the purpose of conducting growth forecasts and regional planning. With each new federal transportation authorization and key state legislation, SCAG’s roles and responsibilities have increased and expanded beyond transportation planning; because of the different needs of the various member cities, the geographic and political differences, SCAG works collaboratively with local governments and partners in developing a shared regional vision and resolving regional challenges. In recent years, SCAG has taken a leadership role in goods movement activities and its impact on the Southern California region.

In 2008, the California State Legislature passed SB 375, which sets a framework and target dates to achieve Green House Gas reductions. This legislation impacts transportation planning and development, land use decisions, it expands the role of SCAG in setting regional targets. SCAG's main function is to coordinate growth and development on a regional level, with responsibility for the development of infrastructure and housing planning in a way that furthers the state's environmental mandates around greenhouse gases and sustainability, as well as broad state-wide goals for increased housing affordability; the state- mandated Regional Housing Needs Assessment is calculated by the state government on a regional basis and in turn the SCAG distributes growth targets for each county and town. The association produces a regional transportation and environmental strategy known as the Regional Transportation Plan-Sustainable Communities that designates certain goals and approaches for long-term environmental and housing development.

The SCAG espouses a holistic perspective for achieving their desired goals of ecological and equitable growth in the region. Southern California is witnessing historic change at the global and regional level; as the world continues to change in sometimes dramatic ways, Southern California is faced with tougher policy choices that will shape the region for generations to come. As the SCAG regions adds about four million more residents to the region by 2040, the ability to coordinate growth and infrastructure will determine how the region consumes its finite resources, whether it’s open space, water, or roadway capacity. Making a real dent in traffic congestion is getting tougher and more expensive; the region must explore new initiatives that can reverse decades of worsening mobility and make tomorrow’s commute better than today. If the region is unable to develop new initiatives to address how people and freight move, average freeway speeds will slow to 28 mph while the economic and public health costs of congestion will continue to rise.

After decades of steady progress, air quality improvements have leveled off as growth has begun to offset the technological advancements that have served the region well until now. Today, the SCAG region faces an air quality crisis, with more than 5,000 premature deaths from fine particulate matter. SCAG must respond to more stringent air quality standards for PM2.5 and unregulated smaller pollutants called nanoparticles by reducing the reliance on diesel and other petroleum-based, combustion engines. The future of the energy supply is becoming uncertain. Southern California is decreasingly dependent on imported petroleum, natural gas, coal, which account for 65 percent of its energy use; as we question the long term viability of a petroleum-based energy future, we must explore more combustion based energy sources. Regional water supplies are decreasingly threatened by pollution, growth is limited by whether there’s adequate supply; the quality of surface and groundwater supplies is important and must be protected through better management practices.
