The Fresno Council of Governments (Fresno COG) is asking residents of Fresno County to help plan our community’s Sustainable Communities Strategy, a plan for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in our region, by responding to an online survey. The SCS is an integral part of Fresno COG’s Regional Transportation Plan Update currently underway. Responses to this survey will assist in choosing actions to improve our air quality, public health and safety, access to jobs, provide support for disadvantaged communities, transit options and more.
The first portion of the survey asks participants to prioritize a list of indicators. This will provide our committees and board with community input when paring down the list to reflect only the highest priority indicators. These indicators will be used to report the performance of SCS Scenarios that will go out to the public for review in August/September of this year. They will show you how well each scenario performed, so their results can be compared to one another.
The second portion of the survey walks participants through brief descriptions of possible SCS Scenarios. All are considered achievable and compatible with current local agency general plans. We ask what they like or don’t like about them. This input will be provided to the Fresno COG committees and Board when they are asked to pare the list of five scenarios to a maximum of three.
In addition to taking the survey, join us for a Fresno COG SCS Virtual Webinar on Tuesday, April 20th at 5:00 pm via Zoom. Spanish translation during the webinar will be available. Registration for the webinar is required and may be accessed at this link.

SCS survey outreach results will be reported to Fresno COG’s RTP Roundtable on April 28, then to our Transportation Technical Committee and Policy Advisory Committee on May 14, 2021. Recommendations from each of those committees will be forwarded to the Fresno COG Policy Board, meeting at 5:30 pm May 27, 2021 to pair the list of five SCS Scenarios down to three, and to reduce the list of 27 indicators down to 10.
