TITLE
A request from the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) to be transitioned to meet on an as needed basis operating under the County Advisory Committee Policy

ABSTRACT

Action Requested:
TAC recommends that the Board of Commissioners consider transitioning the TAC to meet on an as needed basis operating under the County Advisory Committee Policy and revise the policy at an upcoming meeting.

The CTP has been completed and will not need to be updated for several years and the SPOT process is updated every two years. TAC recommends that it will meet only as requested by one or more of the following: County Board of Commissioners, Planning Department, or the Committee/TAC Chairperson.

This request is similar to action taken for the Solid Waste Advisory Committee in 2015.

How does this relate to the Comprehensive Plan:
