1 The Southern California Mega Region

2 Being Competitive Participants in the Global Economy

3 Southern California



6  1.5% of U.S. land area (53,000 sq.mi.)  Over 7% of U.S. population (22 million)  58% of California annual GDP ($900 billion)  The WORLD’S 10th LARGEST ECONOMY SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA MEGA-REGION


8 POPULATION GROWTH Population is expected to grow to by % Increase from ,700,000

9 TRADE GROWTH Los Angeles/Long Beach port complex 5th largest in world 44 million 20 ft. containers by reaching capacity

10 GROWTH IN AIRPORT DEMAND Mega-region’s airports make So. Cal the busiest of all regions in the country 94 million passengers served in 2003 Demand forecast to double before 2030 Cargo expected to triple

11 The region accomodates nearly 30% of the nation’s waterborne trade, and 60% of total cargo containers. Although this activity greatly benefits the nation as a whole, the region incurs a disproportionate share of the burden in congestion and air quality costs. Southern California

12 HIGHWAY CONGESTION Worst in nation since % 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% Projected Growth population auto travel truck travel

13 AIR POLLUTION Progress has stalled and diesel emissions from ships, locomotives and port complex are projected to increase Mega-region continues to have the worst air quality in the U.S.

14 THREATENED ENVIRONMENT & QUALITY OF LIFE ENERGY Demands on the capacity and distribution of energy will remain a major challenge WATER Per capita demand not projected to decline as the population increases HABITAT & OPEN SPACE Suburban-style sprawl continues to consume native habitat

15 Southern California 2/3 of region is government-owned and off-limits to development Dense development pattern: 15,000 to 20,000 people/sq.mi.

16 Among Nine Largest Metro Regions GROWING ECONOMIC & SOCIAL DISPARITY #9 Percentage of adults who have attained at least a high school diploma Highest percentage of owner and rental households spending 30% or more on housing #1 Highest rate of crowded housing #1

17 Improving the region’s jobs-housing balance is the most critical short-term goal to avoid a complete collapse of the transportation, housing and social networks in place. Southern California


19 Reinvest and redevelop along existing and planned transportation corridors and in regional centers

20 Preferred Alternative Sustainability Mobility Prosperity Distributes regional employment & housing growth following 4 guiding principles Focuses growth along existing & planned transportation corridors and in existing and emerging centers Will guide SCAG’s regional programs & policies Livability

21 Household Growth ( without Growth Vision )

22 Household Growth ( with Growth Vision )

31 5,400 Premature Deaths Annually 140,000 Children Have Asthma 980,000 Lost Work Days 2,400 Hospitalizations

32 75% - 80% of the emissions come from mobile sources outside of local control

33 Proposed High-Speed System Initial Operating Segment 81 miles 6 stations $11 billion capital cost $110 million annual O&M Freight System 90 miles 6 stations $19 billion capital cost $296 million annual O&M 4 to 13 million TEUs ELECTRIFIED

34 New Rail Capacity & Improvements Alameda Corridor East-West Corridor More tracks, alternative routes, grade crossings Colto n Hoba rt ELECTRIFIED

35  Promotes relationships between existing metropolitan areas  Supports sustainability and long-term vitality  Streamlines transportation and land use patterns  Fosters better economies  Encourages cost-saving measures through cooperation GLOBAL GATEWAY THINKING
