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

SANDAG public outreach efforts are guided by the SANDAG Public Participation Plan (PPP) and SANDAG Board Policy No. 025: Public Participation Plan Policy. Board Policy No. 025 was last updated in February 2018.

The goal of the PPP is to ensure the latest technologies and best practices are incorporated into the daily outreach and engagement work conducted by SANDAG. We are committed to providing opportunities for meaningful participation throughout the planning process so that everyone can weigh in on projects, programs, and policies, and are informed about how agency work efforts affect them.

The strategies and tactics outlined in the PPP serve to 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.

For information or notices on meetings, workshops, and other public involvement opportunities, visit, sign up for our Region monthly newsletter, connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube, or contact us at (619) 699-1950 or
