The Fresno Council of Governments (Fresno COG) is seeking assistance from community organizations, schools, agencies and businesses to solicit ongoing public input into key activities associated with the preparation of the 2022 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and the Sustainable Communities Strategy Scenarios within it.
