|Transportation Advisory Committee Meetings
truly are magical.
Okay folks, time is running out if you want to apply to be on the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) and help shape local transportation policies.
The TAC is a citizens group that provides transparency and a community perspective to the transportation planning process. It advises the SRTC Board on plans, programs and activities to determine consistency with policies and other activities as directed by the Board.
We like to represent as many demographics as we can so we are looking for people with disabilities, young people, the business and freight moving communities, traditional automobile users and advocates for non-motorized transportation or public transit. I think that about covers everyone though.
The time commitment is small too if you’re a busy person. The group meets every other month for about 1 1/2 hours. Occasionally we’ll have an extra meeting and sometimes we ask for volunteers for subcommittees but that is completely up to you.
There are three open TAC seats to be filled for a three year terms from 2017-2019. More information, and the application to apply, can be found on the SRTC website here. The deadline to apply is 4 p.m. on Friday, November 4, 2016. That’s tomorrow, so get going. The good news? It only takes about 5 minutes to fill out the application.
