Recently releasing the draft 2014 Regional Transportation Plan and Sustainable Communities Strategy and associated Environmental Impact Report, the Stanislaus Council of Governments Policy Board is currently accepting public reviews and comments during a 60 day period.
Setting guidelines for long term coordinated transportation plans and sustainable land use strategies, the 2014 RPT/SCS developed by StanCOG, the regional transportation planning agency, aims to meet for the future needs of Stanislaus County and projected population growth trends until 2040. The 60 day comment period is set to conclude on May 23, with comments currently being accepted in writing or by email.
Additionally, the StanCOG Policy Board, made up of elected officials from each of the County’s nine jurisdictions, will hold a public hearing on May 21 in Ceres at 2701 Fourth St., where comments concerning the draft 2014 RPT/SCS can be made.
The draft documents, including the analysis of potential environmental impacts as required by the California Environmental Quality Act, can be reviewed in person at the StanCOG office, located at 1111 I St., or online at www.stancog.org.
