SAN joaquin seal

Help shape the next 20-plus years of the San Joaquin County region by telling officials what types of transportation investments matter to you.

A public workshop has been scheduled for Manteca (and surrounding area) residents to learn about the long range vision and investment plan for San Joaquin County.

Information about the RTP/SCS, questions, comments, and discussion will be available in both English and Spanish.

The meeting is set for Thursday, June 1 from 6 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Manteca Transit Center, 220 Moffat Blvd., Manteca.

Extensive community involvement and participation is essential to the process of connecting San Joaquin County. The updated RTP/SCS will look at 20-plus years of population growth and housing needs, as well as economic, environmental, and public health goals to address the future transportation needs in San Joaquin County.

Participants will: Learn about the Regional Transportation Plan & Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS); Share their ideas about the future growth and development of the region; Meet SJCOG (San Joaquin Council of Governments) staff, and get to know the priorities of fellow residents.

For residents who cannot attend the workshop, SJCOG continues to welcome input via survey. This survey is scheduled to close on Saturday, June 3.

For questions or information about the RTP/SCS, please visit, or contact Christine Corrales, Assistant Regional Planner at (209) 235-0128 or
