In her role with the League of California Cities, Mayor McLean will work with other elected officials to discuss issues facing California cities and develop policy direction on behalf of the League. Once discussed by the committee and approved, policies are then available to cities throughout the state, providing guidance and the League’s position on state and federal legislation. Mayor McLean will be representing the Los Angeles County Division on the General Resolutions Committee.
In her position as a member of the SCAG High Speed Rail Sub Committee, Mayor McLean will help improve regional connectivity by: providing (SCAG) staff with direction, guidance and focus in the development of potential high-speed rail alternatives for the 2012 Regional Transportation Plan’s (RTP) constrained and strategic plans; provide leadership and strategic thinking with respect to potential high-speed rail policy and project planning issues; and develop regional consensus on critical high-speed rail transportation issues as they relate to the completion of the Draft 2012 RTP. Mayor McLean also serves on the Transportation Policy Committee for the organization.
“The policies and programs in development with both organizations will affect our City’s residents and businesses today and in the future. The City’s involvement with the committees ensures Santa Clarita is represented and that our residents’ concerns are heard,” said Mayor McLean.
