Transportation Advisory Committee Members Needed

Here's an exciting opportunity via Staci Lehman: If you are you looking for a volunteer position that gives you a voice in developing local policies, lets you works closely with area decision makers and have a hand in transportation and land use choices that help shape and develop the regional transportation system, the Spokane Regional Transportation Council (SRTC) needs you for our Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC).

The SRTC is the Metropolitan Planning Organization for Spokane County, ensuring that transportation expenditures are based on a continuing, cooperative and comprehensive planning process. Federal funds for transportation projects are channeled through this process and awarded to local agencies and jurisdictions that deal with transportation.

The TAC is a citizens’ advisory group that provides transparency and a community perspective to that process. The TAC advises the SRTC Policy Board on plans, programs and activities; makes recommendations on transportation policies; and serves as a conduit for information between the Board and the public. TAC Members represent the general public and groups including people with disabilities, senior citizens, youth, the business and freight moving communities, traditional automobile users and advocates for non-motorized transportation or public transit. For more information on the TAC, and an application, go to or call (509) 343-6370 to have one mailed or faxed. The deadline to submit applications is 4 p.m. Saturday, November 30th.
