Office of Sustainable Community Planning HQ Contacts

The Office of Sustainable Community Planning (OSCP) works to improve our local planning partnership through our involvement in the development of land uses that site jobs near homes, and retain a safe and efficient State Highway System. The office emphasizes the need for community-sensitive approaches to multi-modal transportation and land use decisions. OCP also works to enhance Caltrans' leadership role in the development and delivery of multimodal transportation projects that are consistent with community values and therefore enjoy public support.
