WHAT: StanCOG Unmet Needs Assessment workshop
WHEN:Tuesday, Jan. 29, 6 p.m.
WHERE: Patterson City Council Chambers, 1 Plaza, Patterson
WHO: Open to the public

The Stanislaus Council of Governments will host a workshop at the Patterson City Council Chambers Tuesday, Jan. 29 to hear thoughts from the public about unmet public transportation needs on the West Side.

StanCOG associate Mike Costa, who will moderate the event, said it is an opportunity for residents to explain any gaps they see in public transit systems, such as Dial-a-Ride or public busing.

All information from the meeting will be taken back to the agency’s executive committee, which determines whether there are any unmet needs in the area.

StanCOG is a council of city and county governments within Stanislaus County that was established by a joint powers agreement to address regional transportation issues. It is responsible for developing and updating a variety of transportation plans and for allocating the federal and state funds to implement them.

The agency’s executive committee consists of elected and appointed officials from county and local government agencies in Stanislaus County.

Tuesday’s upcoming meeting comes after StanCOG officials hosted a similar forum in Modesto earlier this month.
