The San Luis Obispo Council of Governments (SLOCOG) will hold Public Hearings on March 6, 2019 and April 3, 2019, to receive public testimony on the Draft 2019 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS), Corresponding Draft Conformity Analysis and Determination, and Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Review (PEIR). 

The 2019 RTP is SLOCOG’s long range regional transportation plan for each mode of transportation. The plan identifies financial projections through 2045 and the SLOCOG Board of Directors’ priorities on specific projects expected to be accomplished.  The plan contains the documentation to support a finding that the 2019 RTP and SCS meet the air quality conformity requirements for ozone. This long range “plan” can be amended at any time by the SLOCOG Board. The RTP serves as a foundation for the development of the shorter “action” plans called the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP), which satisfies California transportation planning requirements, and the federal counterpart referred to as the Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) for all transportation projects that require federal approval or are “regionally significant.”  A recent addition to the RTP is the Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS), first fully included as an element of the 2014 RTP/SCS in response to Senate Bill 375 - the Sustainable Communities and Climate Protection Act of 2008. The SCS is intended to reduce the passenger vehicle greenhouse gas emissions associated with the plan.  The 55-day public review and comment period opens February 9, 2019 and ends April 6, 2019 for the RTP, SCS, and Conformity Analysis.  All information pertaining to these documents will be posted for the duration of the review period on the SLOCOG website at: https://slocog.org/2019RTP

The draft PEIR provides an analysis of potential environmental impacts related to the implementation of the 2019 RTP and SCS as required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).  The 45-day public review and comment period for the EIR will begin February 19, 2019 and ends on April 6, 2019.  All information pertaining to this document will be posted for the duration of the review period on the SLOCOG website at:  https://slocog.org/2019RTP 

Individuals wishing accessibility accommodations at this meeting, under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), may request such accommodations to aid hearing, visual, or mobility impairment (including Limited English Proficiency [LEP]) by contacting SLOCOG offices at 781-4219.  Please note that 48 hours advance notice is needed to honor your request. Please refer to www.slocog.org for the meeting agenda and further information. The hearings will be held during the SLOCOG Board meetings that begin at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 6, 2019, in the County Board of Supervisors’ Chambers, County Government Center, 1055 Monterey Street, San Luis Obispo, California and on Wednesday April 3, 2019 at the Atascadero City Hall, Council Chambers, 6500 Palma Avenue, Atascadero.  Comments are welcome on the draft 2019 RTP at the two hearings.  Comments are also welcome on the draft PEIR, a separate item, at the same two hearings. The SLOCOG Board of Directors will consider the adoption of the 2019 RTP and SCS, PEIR, and Conformity Analysis on June 5, 2019.  For more information, write to SLOCOG, 1114 Marsh Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401, or contact James Worthley (805) 788-2002, or email at jworthley@slocog.org
