What is Measure V?

Measure V, or the Merced County 1/2 Cent Transportation Sales Tax, was a measure passed in the November 2016 election to generate more than $450 million over the next thirty years for the purposes of transportation maintenance and improvements.

What is MCAG?

Merced County Association of Governments (MCAG) is an association of city and county governments, with members who meet to solve regional problems such as transportation, solid waste, and air quality. This Association of Governments is where the cities and the county come together as equal partners to solve problems that can only be accomplished by working together.

MCAG was formed through a Joint Powers Authority (JPA) signed by member jurisdictions in November, 1967. As a regional collaborative agency, MCAG  serves in a number of transportation  planning roles in Merced County based on local, state and federal designations. These designations offer increased funding for MCAG activities, primarily in transportation planning for the unincorporated areas of Merced County.
