SLOCOG Regional Transportation Plan
App Suite: Budget Simulator
The San Luis Obispo Council of Governments undertakes a revision of its Regional Transportation Plan every four years. This year, SLOCOG prioritized public engagement to help shape and provide feedback on how funds should be allocated for transportation projects like highways, public transit and road conditions, and livable communities and active transport. For each of these priority areas, users can adjust how much infrastructure they think is necessary and view the impact those recommendations have on budget allocations. Once they’ve landed on a balance they think is ideal, they can submit it with comments to give SLOCOG insight into community preferences and concerns.
