Measure C Half Cent Sales Tax Program, Renewal Work

In 1986, Fresno County voters passed Measure C, a half-cent sales tax aimed at improving the overall quality of Fresno County’s transportation system, including the County and all 15 cities within the County. In its first 20 years, Measure C delivered more than $1 billion of improvements to state highways, county roadways and city streets, along with the construction of over 50 new lanes of Freeway throughout the County. As a result of the successful original measure, in November 2006 Fresno County voters chose to extend Measure C for additional 20 years; 2007-2027. With the Measure Extension coming closer to expiration, work has begun to develop a new extension plan renewal. This effort involves extensive public engagement. For more information about the renewal effort, visit www.measurec.com

Avenue 9/SR 41 Corridor Improvement Study

Fresno COG, in partnership with Madera County Transportation Commission (MCTC), is conducting a study to determine the future transportation needs of the SR 41 corridor in the City of Fresno and the southern segment of SR 41 in Madera County. In addition, the study will analyze the future transportation needs of the Avenue 9 corridor in Madera County between SR 41 and SR 99.  The study will identify existing and future issues along the two corridors related to safety, mobility, congestion, etc., and recommend sustainable improvements that will address the transportation needs of the residents in both counties through multi-modal approaches. Issues to be addressed include: mobility, access, safety, and connectivity for all modes of travel including automobiles, transit, walking, and bicycling.  This project began in July 2020 and will conclude in June 2021.

 

Fresno COG and MCTC are looking to engage with residents and businesses along the study corridors as well as commuters traveling from outside of the study area.  Please use our Online Engagement Center to give us your opinions, feedback, and comments. Take a look around our digital engagement center, participate in our polls and maps, and leave any comments you would like. Please share with your family and friends!

Get involved through public meetings

Fresno COG’s standing or advisory boards, committees and commissions offer an excellent opportunity for expanding public participation opportunities during the transportation planning process. This is accomplished not only by active membership but by presentations made before them and attendance at the open meetings. Find out more about each group, who staffs them and how to get involved with the work they are doing by viewing our committees page which includes links to the meeting agendas at https://www.fresnocog.org/agenda.

Fresno COG’s 2020 Public Participation Plan

The PPP is a plan intended to give Fresno COG’s Policy Board and staff guidance in providing for public involvement and interagency consultation early and often during the regional planning process. It contains policies, guidelines, processes and procedures Fresno COG commits to implementing while seeking and fostering open public involvement during the decision-making process, regarding all matters within discretion. The PPP also identifies opportunities to be involved in the metropolitan transportation planning process.  All documents are available for review or download at www.fresnocog.org or in hard copy at Fresno COG’s offices.
