About Us

The Kings County Association of Governments is the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Kings County region. Our member agencies include the County of Kings and the cities of Avenal, Corcoran, Hanford and Lemoore. As an MPO, KCAG serves as a pass-through agency for funding for local transportation projects. KCAG receives direction from our Transportation Policy Committee (TPC) and the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC). Representatives from each of our member agencies serve on these committees. Caltrans District 6 staff also serve in an advisory capacity.

KCAG coordinates with other San Joaquin Valley MPOs on projects that are regional in nature. Members of each of the MPOs' policy boards serve on the San Joaquin Valley Regional Policy Council, an advisory board that provides guidance on valley-wide subject matters.

  • Alvaro Preciado, Avenal City Council
  • Sid Palmerin, Corcoran City Council
