Transportation Advisory Committee

Purpose:  The TAC acts as a liaison between local communities and the Vermont Agency of Transportation, and provides local and regional input regarding transportation issues important to the region. The TRORC Transportation Program is guided by the TAC which consists of representatives appointed from the Region’s towns. The TAC serves in an advisory capacity to the Board of Commissioners.

Meeting topics include the TRORC transportation planning work program and the items it contains, the regional transportation project prioritization list that is annually submitted to VTrans, regional public transit issues, and the TRORC Regional Transportation Plan. These topics by no means encapsulate all of those at TAC meetings, as other local and regional issues are routinely discussed. TAC meetings are held every other month from 9:30am to 11am and are open and free to the public. Locations vary as Towns get a chance to host the group. If you would like to be on the email distribution list, please contact Rita Seto.  Minutes of TAC meetings can be found here.
