The South Bay Cities Council of Governments (SBCCOG) has as one of its major program goals to improve mobility in the South Bay. Current initiatives include managing the South Bay Measure R Highway Program, advocating South Bay perspectives on a broad range of mobility and sustainability at Metro and SCAG, promoting completion of the Crenshaw/LAX project, Metro LAX Connector and the Metro Green Line through the South Bay rail transit development program, hosting the South Bay Transit Operators Working Group, monitoring developments in mobility technology innovation and improving transportation options for seniors.
The (SBHP) was authorized in November 2008 when the voters of Los Angeles County approved a half cent sales tax increase for transportation improvements throughout the County. The Measure R Expenditure Plan includes a $906 million dollar, 30-year program to improve the operation and reduce delays on South Bay streets, highways, and freeways. The SBCCOG assists South Bay local jurisdictions and Caltrans agencies to develop and fund projects, recommends project priorities for the program to Metro, and assists Metro in the oversight of projects being delivered within the program.
The SBCCOG advocates for extensions of the Metro Green Line, Crenshaw/LAX Light Rail Line, and the LAX-Metro Connector people mover projects in a manner that enhances the quality of life and regional connectivity for the South Bay. For current information on the status of these regional rail projects, for the Green Line Extension, for the Crenshaw/LAX Light Rail Line, and for the LAX-Metro Connector project.
L. A. Metro Metro intends to use the lists as input to its 2016 Long Range Transportation Plan Update.
The SBCCOG Infrastructure Working Group (IWG) provides recommendations to the SBCCOG Steering Committee and Board of Directors on a broad range of South Bay infrastructure issues and programs. The IWG focuses on a wide range of public works issues and programs including transportation program management, energy management, street lighting, water and storm water management, solid waste management, funding for development and maintenance of infrastructure projects, and related regulatory and legislative issues that affect South Bay cities. South Bay Public Works and traffic engineering staff work to promote South Bay projects and identify funding opportunities. Although the IWG meets monthly, meetings are open to the public every other month and are limited to South Bay public agencies on the alternate months. The IWG meetings are on the third Wednesday of the month at 11:30am at the Blue Water Grill (665 N. Harbor Drive, Redondo Beach, CA 90277.) View IWG agenda packets
