Telecommute Surveys For Employers and Employees

Fresno Council of Governments (Fresno COG) is conducting a telecommute survey to assess the rate of telecommuting in Fresno County as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The results gathered will help provide some basis for the vehicle miles travelled (VMT) and greenhouse gases (GHG) reduction quantification of a telecommute strategy, which will be applied in Fresno COG’s 2022 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) and Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS). Increased telecommuting long-term may lead to reduced VMT and GHG emissions, relieve congestion, and help the region meet air quality goals. We need your help in gathering information. 

 

Fresno COG has released surveys for employers and employees throughout Fresno County and will be accepting responses through December 18th.

 

Fresno COG is also asking our member agencies, the RTP Roundtable, and community partners to share the survey with any contacts. Surveys can be provided in various languages as needed. Below you will find the link to both the employee and employer surveys.

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 Draft 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.
