Public Participation Plan

Public Participation

Among its many roles, SJCOG serves as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), Regional Transportation Planning Agency (RTPA), and Local Transportation Sales Tax Authority for San Joaquin County. Public participation is essential to the integrated approach to regional transportation, land use, and environmental planning led by the agency. Whether you are a member of SJCOG or a private citizen, you have a role to play in regional planning decisions. The Public Participation Plan provides a mechanism for bringing a broad range of diverse viewpoints and values in SJCOG's activities and programs.

Consultation Procedures with Native American Tribal Governments

SJCOG has prepared a report outlining the documented process that outlines the roles, responsibilities, and key decision points for consulting with federally recognized Tribal governments in San Joaquin County.  Although consultation is not mandated for non-federally recognized tribes, SJCOG routinely consults with known tribes when plans or activities might impact cultural values or the community. View the 2018 Report and Board Resolution.
