Regional Transit Planning Done Right
This editorial says that the Sacramento Area Council of Governments' Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP)offers a concept that is truly regional in scope, breaking the pattern ofdealing with transportation issues on a local level. There has beenopposition from local groups and officials, as they worry that regionalprojects will become a higher priority than local ones. Since the MTPrelies on voter support for transportation taxes, the editorial reminds readers to support the overall plan, even if they dispute individualprojects, because it increases mobility between areas of industry andbegins to combine transportation with land use and open space projects.
