SCAG to hold transportation meeting

The Southern California Association of Governments will hold a public meeting Tuesday in Riverside to discuss the future of Southern California transportation.

The association, a metropolitan planning organization that covers six of the 10 counties in Southern California, is soliciting public opinion for Connect SoCal – the 2020-2045 Regional Transportation Plan and Sustainable Communities Strategy, according to a statement.

That plan will lay out the association’s transportation policy for the next 25 years. Southern California’s population is expected to grow by about four million people during that time.

The Riverside session is one of a series of workshops that will give residents an opportunity to give their opinions on transportation issues. It is scheduled for 9-11 a.m. at the association’s downtown office, 3403 10th St.

A workshop is also scheduled to be held from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday at the Corona Public Library, 650 S. Main St.
