Regoinal Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS)

2022 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS)

StanCOG is updating the Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS), a multi-modal transportation plan for Stanislaus County through the year 2046. The RTP/SCS defines the policies, plans and programs for the coordination and programming of transportation improvements in the region.

On June 8, 2022, StanCOG released the Draft 2022 RTP/SCS for a 55-day public review and comment period. A link to that document is provided here: Draft 2022 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS). On June 10, 2022, StanCOG released the accompanying Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the 2022 RTP/SCS for a public review and comment period. A link to the Draft EIR is provided here: Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The public comment period on these documents has now closed.

Adopted Final Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) Methodology

Adopted Final Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) Methodology

The Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) is a state mandated process whereby existing and future housing needs within a region is quantified, and local governments must plan for enough housing to meet the region’s need. StanCOG is in the process of developing the 6th Cycle Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) Plan, which will cover the planning period from 2023 - 2031.

Following the adoption of the Final Methodology, StanCOG released the Draft RHNA Plan on June 28, 2022, for a 45-day jurisdictional appeals period. Any local jurisdiction within the Stanislaus region may file an appeal to modify its Draft RHNA Allocation or another jurisdiction’s Draft RHNA Allocation included as part of StanCOG’s Draft RHNA Plan.

The 45-day appeals period for the Draft Sixth Cycle RHNA Plan will commence on Tuesday, June 28, 2022, and end on Friday, August 12, 2022.

New Transportation Investments are Needed Throughout Stanislaus County

Measure L

Measure L is the Transportation Ordinance and Expenditure Plan approved by Stanislaus County voters on November 8, 2016 . The measure raised the sales tax in Stanislaus County on April 1, 2017, by one-half cent for a total period of 25 years to improve our local streets and roads, improve connectivity and reduce congestion.

Measure L includes strong taxpayer safeguards to ensure that the projects and programs approved by the voters are funded and delivered. A Citizens Oversight Committee has been created to provide an enhanced level of accountability for expenditures made under the Plan to ensure that all voter mandates are carried out and that the financial integrity and performance of the program is maintained.
