Metropolitan Planning Organization for the Sacramento Metropolitan Area
The Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) is the federally-designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the six-county, 22-city Sacramento metropolitan region and is the transportation planning agency responsible for developing and implementing the long-range transportation plan, known as the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). SACOG does this by coordinating transportation planning and long-range land use planning efforts among the local jurisdictions, and by programming funding for transportation infrastructure in the region.
SACOG’s 2020 MTP/SCS continues to emphasize the key strategies from the first SCS that locate the majority of new housing and jobs within the region’s existing urbanized areas, reduce barriers to infill development, and increase density in targeted areas served by transit to make the transit system more viable and efficient. SACOG also took a "fix-it-first" approach when prioritizing roadway funding while leveraging roadway maintenance projects to incorporate “complete street” elements. Roadway maintenance and rehabilitation projects were prioritized over projects that would add new roadway capacity.
