Abstract
The project, as defined by CEQA Statues, Section 21065, is the preparation of the 2011 revision of the RTP. As the designated Regional Transportation Planning Agency (RTPA), Fresno COG is mandated by state and federal law to update the Regional Transportation Plan every four (4) years. The last comprehensive EIR on the RTP was completed in May 2007, which addressed transportation improvement projects, programs, and funding reflected in the 2004 RTP together with additional funding from the proposed (now approved) Cent Sales Tax Measure Extension (Measure "C"). Measure "C" did receive the 2/3rds voter approval required in order to pass in the November 2006 election. The 2011 revision to the RTP must be prepared to address possible environmental impacts resulting from its implementation and sources of funding that are available for programming. The RTP is used to guide the development of the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP). The RTIP is the programming document used to plan the construction of regional transportation projects and requires State Department of Transportation (Caltrans) approval. No project-level assessments of environmental impacts will be addressed by this SEIR. The RTP is also used as a transportation planning document by each of the sixteen member jurisdictions of Fresno COG. The members include the County of Fresno and the cities of Clovis, Coalinga, Firebaugh, Fowler, Fresno, Huron, Kerman, Kingsburg, Mendota, Orange Cove, Parlier, Reedley, San Joaquin, Sanger, and Selma.
