The Cleveland National Forest Foundation (CNFF) released it 50-10 Transit Plan in 2011 as an alternative to SANDAG’s highway-focused 2050 Regional Transportation Plan.
The 50-10 Transit Plan calls for a new framework of public transit infrastructure to meet the region’s economic, lifestyle and mobility demands.
The premise of the 50-10 Transit Plan is quite simple – move the transit projects in SANDAG’s 2050 RTP and build them up front in ten years. This comprehensive, integrated transit system would initially be focused within the region’s urban core, where existing and future higher density land uses would best complement the expanded transit services - thus making biking, walking and transit competitive with the automobile.
It underscores the need to modify SANDAG’s plans to reflect transit priority over highway projects.. The cornerstone of the plan is more near-term promotion of land use patterns to increase residential development densities within the urban core. The creation of neighborhoods that are close to needed services and amenities would be the outcome.

- Settlement Agreement:SANDAG signed a settlement agreement for the precise purpose of mitigating the enormous climate change impacts expected to result from its flawed transportation planning. As the former Attorney General Brown and SOFAR had pointed out, SANDAG's Regional Transportation Plan serves to promote urban sprawl in San Diego County's rural areas and to encourage a transportation system committed to the automobile.

- San Diego Infill Study: Almost all cities in San Diego County have substantially more residential capacity than demand by 2030, even with the additional allocation of units from the County. Removing 47,500 units from the County and redirecting them to cities still leaves the cities of the County with 158,000 units of residential capacity for future growth beyond 2030.
