Technical Advisory Committee

The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) includes representatives from all of the TPO’s member jurisdictions, as well as, transit agency and school board representatives. The smaller cities are often represented by the city manager while the larger cities appoint a planner or engineer. The TAC makes regular recommendations to the TPO Board on technical issues and other action items.
