Current MTP/SCS

The Metropolitan Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (MTP/SCS) is a long-range plan for transportation in the region built on the Blueprint. SACOG is required by federal law to update the MTP at least every four years. Since the last MTP, California adopted Senate Bill 375, which requires a Sustainable Communities Strategy, similar to the Sacramento region’s smart land use Blueprint project, to be added to transportation plans across the state. The downturn in the economy has also resulted in less money for transportation, especially at the local level. SACOG will be factoring these changes into the MTP/SCS.

SACOG thanks the public, member and partner agencies, and interested stakeholders for participating in the 2012 MTP/SCS process, reviewing the Draft MTP/SCS, and providing comments on the Draft MTP/SCS. The SACOG Board adopted the  current MTP/SCS at its April 19, 2012 meeting.
