Outreach: Public Participation Plan

This Public Participation Plan is designed for SACOG staff, elected officials, and most importantly the public to understand the specific activities SACOG is committed to for different types of plans and projects. State and federal regulations spell out some requirements that must be met, but there are also many optional activities that SACOG regularly performs.
