SJTPO is working to establish a Community Outreach and Engagement Committee (COEC) to enhance the scope of its public outreach and to ensure its decision-making processes are based on diverse, inclusive, and equity-based information and viewpoints. Through its collective membership, the COEC will provide the SJTPO with a direct channel for public and special interest groups to provide input on important subjects such as the development of a safe, effective, and efficient multi-modal transportation system in the SJTPO four-county region.
SJTPO will be reaching out into the community to compose a membership that, to the greatest reasonable degree, reflects the racial, ethnic, cultural, gender, age, geographic, ability, and economic diversity of the four-county region to allow for the discussion of important issues with individuals that can offer SJTPO a snapshot of the diverse set of viewpoints and interests that exist in the region.
SJTPO tentatively anticipates that the COEC will have its first meeting in Late February or Early March of 2023. This page will be updated as meetings, membership, or any additional information are available.
