StanCOG is the Metropoli­tan Plan­ning Or­ga­ni­za­tion (MPO) for the Stanis­laus Re­gion as des­ig­nated by the Fed­eral gov- ern­ment, and the Re­gional Trans­porta­tion Plan­ning Agency (RTPA) as des­ig­nated by the State of Cal­i­for­nia. It is re­spon­si­ble for de­vel­op­ing and up­dat­ing a va­ri­ety of trans­porta­tion plans and for al­lo­cat­ing the fed­eral and state funds to im­ple­ment them. While re­gional trans­porta­tion plan­ning is its pri­mary role, StanCOG is also in­volved in other is­sues that af­fect the en­tire re­gion such as air qual­ity. StanCOG pro­vides the fo­rum that brings may­ors, city council mem­bers and county su­pervi- sors to­gether to work on re­gional is­sues in a set­ting that pro­motes the in­volve­ment of the pub­lic in the plan­ning process for the Stanis­laus re­gion.
