The 54th SCAG Regional Conference and General Assembly will convene May 1-3 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, CA.
This year’s theme, "Beyond Boundaries," is about transcending the jurisdictional boundaries of individual cities and counties to plan for the whole region. The event’s panel topics will lay the foundation for Connect SoCal – the 2020-2045 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy and will explore what it means to truly connect a region of 191 cities, identify paths to strengthening leadership and community-building around traffic safety, and provide tangible strategies for harnessing new technologies to benefit everyone.
SAFETY LEADERSHIP SYMPOSIUM - for Local Elected Officials 11am – 5pm, Wednesday May 1, 2019
Traffic safety is a serious issue in Southern California. On average, more than 1,500 people die and 136,000 people are injured in collisions every year, and most collisions are happening on local streets – not freeways. Many of these injuries and deaths can be prevented through local education or enforcement strategies, or by designing safer streets.
Elected officials are invited to join us to explore regional traffic safety issues at a special pre-conference Safety Leadership Symposium on Wednesday, May 1, from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Expert panelists will highlight policy and implementation tools available to local governments to help improve safety.
Registration is free for elected officials in the SCAG region. If you are interested in attending or have questions, please contact Lindsey Hansen, Community Engagement Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (213) 236-1921
