Regional Mobility & Accessibility Study

Public Forums - Responding to Citizen Input

The TPB's Citizen Advisory Committee was one of the first voices in 2000 to call for a regional "what if" scenario. "I urge the TPB to give us the framework to discuss and debate different alternatives," said former CAC Chair Harry Sanders when he asked the board for an analysis of transportation and land-use scenarios.

Since the inception of the study, the CAC has been an integral player. In 2003, the committee proposed the "Region Undivided" scenario, which shifts long-term job and household growth to the eastern side of the region. In 2004, the CAC launched a series of public forums on the challenges highlighted in the study.
