2014 RTP/SCS Amendment #1 - Regional Definition of Disadvantaged Communities
At its June 1st meeting, the SLOCOG Board adopted an amendment to the 2014 RTP/SCS to incorporate a â€œregional definition of disadvantaged communitiesâ€. This amendment includes new language in the Sustainable Communities Strategy chapter of the RTP, as well as a new technical appendix to address the 13 variables considered in the definition, as well as data sources, data analysis methodology and subregional maps to show the neighborhoods of the region that are considered meeting the regional definition of disadvantaged communities.
Having this definition in place may allow SLOCOG, Rideshare and member jurisdictions be more competitive in statewide grants that typically award additional points to plans and projects that consider and provide benefits to disadvantaged communities in a given region.
The associated GIS spatial data, symbology layers, and supporting materials are available on SLOCOGâ€™s Data Services page
More information can be found in the staff report.
