Alliance News: Transportation Advisory Board Seeks New Members
Transportation Advisory Board Seeks New Members
A board that works with the Metropolitan Council to allocate millions in federal funding to roads, transit and bicycle/pedestrian projects is looking for new members. The Transportation Advisory Board (TAB) has 34 members including city and county representatives, state agencies, people with expertise in transportation and local residents.
In addition, due to the successful advocacy of four partner coalitions that the Alliance supports – the Community Engagement Steering Committee, Equity in Place, the Blue Line Coalition, and the SW LRT Equity Commitments – the Met Council has established a new equity advisory committee. Starting in 2016, the 21 member committee will advise the Council getting at the root cause of disparities in our region and developing solutions.
