Impact Sciences is working with the Kern Council of Governments (COG) to prepare the EIR for the 2014 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS). The RTP contains an integrated set of public policies, strategies, and investments to maintain, manage, and improve Kern’s transportation system through 2035. The SCS is a growth strategy for the region which, in combination with transportation policies and programs, strives to reduce emissions and meet greenhouse gas reduction targets for the region.
