San Diego’s Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) has drawn fire from a group that called it illegal and environmentally disastrous. The Cleveland National Forest Foundation also offered an alternative plan that would implement all the mass-transit proposals in the 40-year RTP during the coming 10 years.

They’ve dubbed their proposal the “50-10” transit plan.

The Regional Transportation Plan was created by SANDAG, San Diego’s regional planning agency. The RTP would spend $196 billion in state, federal and local tax money over the next 40 years to build roads, mass transit systems and related developments. The foundation said the transportation plan was a recipe for increased car traffic and increased greenhouse gas emissions.
