About the Workshops

SACOG held eight public workshops in October and November, 2015: three in Sacramento County and one in each in El Dorado, Placer, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties. These workshops featured an open house format that allowed residents to drop in any time to give input about the travel choices they would like to have, while providing them with information on how our region’s transportation plan is funded.
