Community Input

Obtaining community input is critical to creating a plan that reflects the varied values, needs, and interests of the San Diego region’s residents and businesses. SANDAG is committed to engaging a broad and diverse cross-section of the San Diego region during the development of the Plan.

2019 Regional Plan Transportation Network Draft Performance Measures 

On December 4, 2017, SANDAG hosted a workshop to gather input on the potential transportation network performance measures for San Diego Forward: The 2019 Regional Plan. The thoughtful and extensive input gathered at the workshop is important to develop effective performance measures to evaluate San Diego’s future regional transportation network. 

Workshop materials:
•     Summary of input gathered at workshop
•     Performance measures handout (English | Español)
•     PowerPoint presentation
•     Invitation (English | Español)


Following the workshop and through December 15, 2017, more than 300 respondents provided feedback on the proposed Performance Measures through an online survey. Staff reviewed comments and developed a summary of survey input. Major community input themes include support for a vehicle miles traveled (VMT) measure, assessing health outcomes and the perception of safety, and mode- and subregional-specific metrics. Draft Performance Measures are anticipated to be discussed at the Transportation and Regional Planning Committee meetings on February 2, 2018. The Board of Directors will consider approval of final Performance Measures in spring 2018.


Community Based Outreach
In order to reach out to community members who have traditionally been underserved and underrepresented in the planning process, SANDAG is partnering with approximately 12 to 15 Community Based Organizations from around the region to bring San Diego Forward to the community level. These organizations have created programs to engage stakeholders from low-income communities, limited-English speaking populations, the disabled community, and seniors to ensure that their voices are heard and that San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan is socially equitable.
