You Can Apply to Join Our New Community Advisory Committee
Posted on: October 23, 2015 in MetroPlan Orlando Advisory Committees
Are you interested in getting more involved in transportation planning? Here’s your chance – we’re looking for members for our new Community Advisory Committee.
Starting in January 2016, the Community Advisory Committee will provide citizen input to the transportation planning process and will strive to reflect the diversity of the Central Florida community, including those who are underserved or disadvantaged. The committee is structured to include interests from across the transportation spectrum, including bicyclists, pedestrians, drivers, and transit riders (bus and rail).
The following 16 MetroPlan Orlando Board appointee seats are available:
Multimodal Advocates – 10 seats
Underserved – 3 seats
Transportation Disadvantaged (disabled or elderly) – 2 seats
Business community – 1 seat
Applying to join the committee is easy. Just fill out this application and tell us why you’re interested in joining: [link to CAC application]
Applications should be emailed by November 18, 2015 to CACapplication@metroplanorlando.com or mailed to MetroPlan Orlando, 315 E. Robinson Street, Suite 355, Orlando, FL 32801. All applications will be reviewed by a subcommittee, which will make recommendations to the MetroPlan Orlando Board. The Board will make official committee appointments at its December 9, 2015 meeting.
The new committee is being formed through a merger of the Citizens’ Advisory Committee and Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee. This change was approved by the MetroPlan Orlando Board as part of our Strategic Business Plan update. For more information on the Community Advisory Committee, see the bylaws below:
