Local Policy Maker Group

The Local Policy Maker Group (LPMG) meets every month on the fourth Thursday at 5:30 p.m. in the Edward J. Bacciocco Auditorium located on the second floor at SamTrans Administrative Offices, 1250 San Carlos Ave., San Carlos. The office is located two blocks west of the San Carlos Caltrain Station.

The Local Policy Maker Group (LPMG) is an advisory group, comprised of officials from the cities and counties along the Caltrain corridor. A list of the current membership can be viewed below.

In 2012, Caltrain created the LPMG as a formal venue to facilitate local input and guidance on the Caltrain Modernization (CalMod) Program. At the time, the LPMG included officials from the 17 cities and three counties along the Caltrain Electrification Project corridor from San Francisco to San Jose.  

In 2016, Caltrain opened up the venue for the California High-Speed Rail Authority staff to provide updates on the HSR Blended System Project. 

In 2018, Caltrain expanded the scope of the LPMG to include the Caltrain Business Plan. The Caltrain Business Plan touches the entire Caltrain corridor from San Francisco to Gilroy. The LPMG membership was expanded to mirror the full corridor boundaries. 

Today the group is comprised of officials from all 19 cities and three counties along the Caltrain corridor. The LPMG meets monthly to provide feedback and receive updates on the Caltrain Business Plan, Caltrain Electrification Project, and HSR Blended System Plan.
