SAN JOAQUIN COUNCIL OF GOVERNMENTS

SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES STRATEGY

In collaboration with Kittelson Associates, we assisted the San Joaquin Council of Governments (SJCOG) in preparing the 2014 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and Sustainable Communities Strategy. Mintier Harnish’s role in this project was to work with SJCOG staff to prepare SCS alternatives, evaluate the SCS alternatives using RTP performance measures, and develop a preferred SCS. This entailed the development of alternative RTP growth/land use scenarios in coordination with and relative to the typical RTP infrastructure-based funding allocations scenarios and RHNA allocation process. The land use scenarios were developed using the land use allocation software tool Envision Tomorrow.
