The Citizens’ Advisory Committee will provide insight and recommendations produced during the course of the TFMP study. The CAC members will also assess and provide guidance, from a citizen's perspective, regarding the feasibility of a range of potential transportation solutions.
Earlier this year, three public listening sessions were held in order to solicit citizen feedback about the transportation system in nine corridors of the County. These areas were identified to be where most of the County’s travel occurs and will also see the majority of growth in relation to the General Development Plan.
The study is being conducted by a team of consultants under the direction of the Office of Planning and Zoning and is 80% funded through a Federal transportation planning grant.
