Planning Committee

CDTC's Planning Committee has the delegated authority to develop recommendations about transportation plans and programs for the Policy Board. The Planning Committee is composed largely of technical counterparts to the policy members of the CDTC. For example, mayors serve at the policy level while city engineers or planning directors serve on the Planning Committee. The Policy Board has also delegated the Planning Committee authority to approve small-scale changes to CDTC's work program (UPWP) or to the Transportation Improvement Program.

Planning Committee meetings are open to the public.

To register to speak and/ or to request auxiliary aids or services and reasonable accommodations please contact us at: 458-2161 or Request for aids, services, or reasonable accommodations must be made at least 48 hours prior to the meeting.
