StanCOG is comprised of the cities of Ceres, Hughson, Modesto, Newman, Oakdale, Patterson, Riverbank, Turlock and Waterford, and Stanislaus County.

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

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

StanCOG is in the process of 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. A link to that document is provided here: Draft 2022 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS). On June 10, 2022, StanCOG will release the accompanying Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the 2022 RTP/SCS. Below are each document’s review period:

  • The Draft 2022 RTP/SCS is available for public review from June 8, 2022, to 5 PM on August 2, 2022; and
  • The Draft EIR will be available for public review from June 10, 2022, to 5 PM on July 25, 2022.

StanCOG will hold two public hearings on the Draft 2022 RTP/SCS and EIR. Below is information on the date, times, and locations of each public hearing.

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 Plan (RHNP), which will cover the planning period from 2023 - 2031. The Final RHNA Methodology was adopted by the StanCOG’s Policy Board on June 16, 2022. The Adopted Final Methodology will be incorporated into the Draft Regional Housing Needs Plan (RHNP).

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.
