The Valley Vision Stanislaus Steering Committee is one of the StanCOG Standing Committees. This committee was formed in 2011, to collaboratively address the requirements of Senate Bill 375 (SB 375), which calls on StanCOG to prepare integrated land use and transportation document, a Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS), as part of all future Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) updates. The Valley Vision Stanislaus plan sets a development pattern for the region, which when combined with transportation policies, will reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from vehicles.

Members include a representative from each of the local member agencies, a representative from the Policy Board, the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO), and other representatives. Valley Vision Stanislaus meetings are open to the public and there is an opportunity on every agenda for the public to offer comments. Meetings are held in the StanCOG Board Room, 1111 I Street, 3rd floor, in downtown Modesto. Members of the public may also join the meetings virtually. Information on how to participate is included on the front page of meeting agendas.
