San Bernardino Mayor Helen Tran Appointed
to SCAG Committee on Community,
Economic, and Human Development

The City of San Bernardino has announced that Mayor Helen Tran has been appointed to serve on the influential Community, Economic, and Human Development Committee for the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). Tran will represent both the City of San Bernardino and the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA).

“I am pleased to have been appointed to this committee,” said Tran. “Having a seat at the table on the committee that oversees local housing allocations is critical for San Bernardino and the region.”

SCAG’s Community, Economic and Human Development (CHED) Committee reviews projects, plans and programs of regional significance for consistency and conformity with applicable regional plans. Included in its duties are the oversight of the growth visioning and growth forecasting processes, as well as the Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA), which determines additional housing requirements for every city in Southern California to meet.

“I look forward to representing our interests to ensure the San Bernardino achieves a balance between both housing and jobs,” added Tran.

Mayor Tran joins San Bernardino Council Member Damon Alexander representing the region on a SCAG committee. Last month, Alexander was appointed to the Committee on Energy and the Environment.

SCAG is an association of local governments and public agencies that convenes to address critical regional issues. It is the nation’s largest metropolitan planning organization, encompassing six counties (Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura), 191 cities, and 19 million people in an area covering more than 38,000 square miles.
