Notice is hereby given that the San Joaquin Council of Governments (SJCOG) has released the Draft 
Program Environmental Impact Report (EIR) document for a 45-day public review/comment period.

Project Description: The 2022 RTP/SCS is the region’s long range transportation plan through 2046 
for the  San Joaquin County metropolitan region. The proposed 2022 RTP/SCS is an update to the 
current 2018 RTP/SCS that was adopted in August 2018. The proposed 2022 RTP/SCS reflects changes in 
legislative requirements, local land use policies, and resource constraints that have occurred 
since adoption of the current 2018 RTP/SCS. The 2022 update to the 2018 RTP/SCS is focused on 
continued implementation of the 2018 RTP/SCS, with updates to ensure consistency with federal, 
State, and local planning requirements. The 2022 RTP/SCS is the long-term coordinated 
transportation/land use strategy and provides a framework for transportation investment out to the 
year 2046.

Project Location: The 2022 RTP/SCS covers the entire area of San Joaquin County and includes the 
cities of Escalon, Lathrop Lodi, Manteca, Stockton, Tracy, and Ripon. Capital improvement 
transportation projects, identified in the proposed 2022 RTP/SCS, are located on State highways, 
County roads, and locally-owned streets, as well as on transit district property, airports, rail 
lines and property, and public utility lands.

Probable Environmental Effects: The Draft EIR provides a programmatic analysis of environmental 
impacts related to the implementation of the 2022 RTP/SCS. It discloses significant effects for the 
following resource categories: aesthetics; agriculture; air quality; biology; cultural resources;
