Public Participation Plan


The SANDAG Public Participation Plan establishes a process for communicating with and obtaining input from the public concerning agency programs, projects, and program funding.

Public Participation Plan

The SANDAG Public Participation Plan, which was approved by the SANDAG Board of Directors on December 18, 2009, and updated on December 21, 2012, establishes a process for communicating with and obtaining input from the public concerning agency programs, projects, and program funding.

The strategies and tactics outlined in the plan guide the agency’s public outreach and involvement efforts for highway projects; transit fare changes and construction; smart growth, environmental, and planning efforts; growth forecasts; the Regional Transportation Plan; Regional Transportation Improvement Program; Tribal Consultation; and other initiatives. SANDAG public outreach efforts also are guided by the Public Participation Board Policy No. 25.

SANDAG is committed to providing opportunities for meaningful participation throughout the planning process so that public input will contribute to the development and implementation of the final project or plan. Public input also contributes to how a plan or project is evaluated and how decisions are made. For information or notices on meetings, workshops, and other public involvement opportunities, contact us at (619) 699-1950 or pio@sandag.org.

Language Assistance Plan

SANDAG is committed to ensuring that no person is excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or discriminated against under its projects, programs or activities on the basis of race, color, creed, national origin, sex, age, or disability as provided in Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and 49 United States Code Section 5332. 

Related to the national origin component of Title VI, metropolitan planning organizations must also provide meaningful access to programs, services and activities to individuals with limited English proficiency. The Language Assistance Plan outlines our accommodations for limited English speakers.
