What is San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan?


What is a regional plan?

A regional plan is a long-term blueprint for how the San Diego region will grow and how we will get around. It’s a broad-based community effort that addresses many important issues, including using land more wisely, building a more efficient and accessible transportation system, protecting the environment, improving public health, promoting a strong regional economy, better managing our access to energy, incorporating equity into the planning process, addressing pressing needs on tribal lands, and supporting a vibrant international border.

San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan (Regional Plan) merges three planning documents that SANDAG must complete per state and federal laws: the Regional Transportation Plan, the Sustainable Communities Strategy, and the Regional Comprehensive Plan. The Regional Plan also assists with other regional transportation planning and programming efforts, including overseeing which projects are funded under the Regional Transportation Improvement Program and the TransNet program of projects.
