2035 Metropolitan Transportation Plan
The Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) will be hosting workshops throughout October to gather input from residents on transportation and land use planning in the Sacramento region.
SACOG is a land use and transportation planning agency for the region including Sacramento, El Dorado, Placer, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba counties. As part of the transportation planning process, SACOG updates the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) every four years. The MTP includes investments in transit, freeways, roadways, and bike and pedestrian improvements.
In an effort to plan thoughtfully for all regional travel needs, SACOG will host 9 public workshops around the region in which residents can get information and provide input on the MTP. This process is very important because the MTP will guide transportation over the next 25 years. Residents can help shape the plan by voicing their needs, experiences and thoughts on transportation in the Sacramento area. Everyone is encouraged to attend; no previous meeting participation or transportation planning experience is needed. The workshops are FREE and food will be provided.
Workshops will be held in October, registration online is now open at www.sacog.org/update or by phone at 916-321-9000.
