Public Participation Plan



The most recent Public Participation Plan was adopted by the SACOG board on Oct. 21, 2021. 

The Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) is committed to effectively involving the public in its transportation planning and programming activities. 

The Public Participation Plan (PPP) is SACOG’s process document for the Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP), Metropolitan Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (MTP/SCS), Overall Work Program (OWP), and key decisions.

The PPP lays out outreach strategies for providing the public, partners, and any interested party the opportunity to engage in the work SACOG does. The PPP is a resource to ensure SACOG meets the federal and state requirements for public participation and to highlight the best practices to create the most transparent and equitable outreach processes we can.

The Public Participation Plan is intended for SACOG staff to use it as a planning resource and as a guide for the public to understand how public participation strategies will be developed. The Public Participation Plan is the collection of various processes for SACOG and should not be interpreted as the final outreach, engagement, and/or involvement strategy, but rather a document that lays out the methods to be used to develop robust, qualitative, quantitative, accessible, and thoughtful plans for outreach. All plans, programs, and projects will develop unique engagement processes using this document as a resource.
