San Bernardino County Transportation Authority SB 1000 Equity Toolkit

2024 Best Practices, Award of Excellence, Inland Empire of California Section APA

San Bernardino County, CA


As part of the State of California’s Regional Early Action Planning
(REAP) program, R+A provided technical assistance to staff at the San Bernardino
County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) with the creation of a regional Senate
Bill 1000 (C. Leyva, 2016) toolkit on environmental justice. This toolkit project has
included providing SB 1000 trainings for Planning staff, designing SB 1000 fact
sheets for city/county staff and the general public, developing EJ Element model
language and best practices, and working across jurisdictions within the County to
create tailored SB 1000 analysis. R+A staff have also facilitated a stakeholder input
process to better coordinate social equity and public health data efforts between
SBCTA and the County’s Department of Public Health.

Client: San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA)

Timeframe: 2021 - 2023
