Boards & Committees: Citizen's Advisory Committee

Contact: Lisa Hickman:

The function of the Citizen’s Advisory Committee (CAC) is to provide citizens’ views and recommendations to the TPO Governing Board on projects, plans, and programs referred to the Committee. The CAC has 24 voting members and alternates appointed by local jurisdictions. Individuals interested in serving on the CAC may contact their county commissioner or city council representative to volunteer and may be appointed if there is a vacancy.
