In accordance with Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-33-20, The San Joaquin Council of Governments and staff will be participating in this meeting via teleconference. In the interest of maintaining appropriate social distancing, members of the public may participate in the meeting electronically and shall have the right to observe and offer public comment at the appropriate time during this special meeting by joining at https://sjcog.zoom.us/j/94401264486, or by calling in at 1-669-900-6833 (Webinar ID: 944 0126 4486).

In 2006, San Joaquin voters renewed the previous Measure K program for another 30-year period to implement the ½-cent sales tax for transportation purposes through March 31, 2041. The Measure K Renewal Expenditure Plan calls for street repairs, safety and operational improvements on local streets and roads, projects to reduce congestion on streets and highways, passenger rail and bus service to provide alternatives to the car and improve air quality of the San Joaquin Valley, as well as separation of streets from railroads at designated crossings to improve safety.
SJCOG staff propose amending the Measure K Renewal Ordinance to revise the Regional Congestion Management Plan language to be consistent with current state law. At this time, this is the only proposed amendment to the Measure K Ordinance and there are no proposed changes to the Measure K Expenditure Plan. The public hearing process may identify other proposals.
If you have any comments relevant to the Ordinance and Expenditure Plan amendment process, you are invited to be present. If you challenge the nature of any proposed action in court, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised at the public hearing described in this notice or in written correspondence delivered to SJCOG at or prior to the public hearing. Copies of the Measure K Ordinance and Expenditure Plan are available at www.sjcog.org.
