Economic Development Studies


To help implement the vision for a sustainable, transit-oriented future, SCAG is partnering with El Monte to apply for the High Quality Transit Area Analysis Project, to develop HQTA Vision Plans that will identify active transportation improvements, redevelopment strategies, and implementation plans to help communities take full advantage of the transit investment, and tap into regional and state funding opportunities and technical support. The overall goal will be to develop plans that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and vehicle miles traveled.
