[ARCHIVED] SJCOG Releases Draft Program EIR for the 2018 RTP/SCS

Program EIR cover

SJCOG has prepared a Draft Program Environmental Impact Report (Program EIR) SCH#2017032042, in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act for the 2018 Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (2018 RTP/SCS). The Draft Program EIR was released for public review and comment on March 13, 2018.  

Under the law known as the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), SJCOG must prepare a "program-level" Environmental Impact Report (Program EIR) to inform residents and decision makers of the potential environmental impacts that could result from implementing the 2018 RTP/SCS. Rather than analyze individual projects or policies, the Program EIR looks at potential environmental impacts of the Plan as a whole. Individual projects are required to separately comply with CEQA and/or the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as applicable.

The Draft EIR contains an Executive Summary, and is organized into three main sections: Introduction and Project Description; Approach to the Analysis and Analysis Results by Subject Area; Alternatives to the Proposed Plan and Conclusions. The Draft EIR is supported by appendices documenting analysis assumptions and results.

The Draft Program EIR is available electronically at The previously released Draft 2018 RTP/SCS is available at  A print copy, including the Technical Appendices, is available for review at the SJCOG Offices, 555 East Weber Avenue, Stockton. You may submit a request for a print copy or CD by calling (209) 235-0600.

SJCOG has scheduled two public hearings and a series of public presentations/open houses throughout the county for comment on the draft Plan. Residents who attend these events will have the opportunity to hear its local and regional impact; ask questions; and offer comments on the draft Plan's goals, proposed growth patters, transportation investment strategy, and key actions identified to address ongoing and long-term regionlal challenges. Find the full list of events.  

The 45-day public comment period began March 13, 2018 and ends April 26, 2018.  

Written comments should be directed to: 

Kim Anderson, Senior Regional Planner

San Joaquin Council of Governments

555 E. Weber Avenue

Stockton, CA 95202
