Transportation Advisory Committee

The Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) is composed of delegates from the region’s 21 municipalities. Each municipality may have a delegate and an alternate. Alternates represent the municipality when the delegates cannot. The TAC was formed to provide local input to the VT Agency of Transportation, to identify needs and to develop transportation improvement programs. The TAC typically meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at the ACRPC office at 7:00 PM.

Description of TAC Delegate Duties

Each April, the Addison County Regional Planning Commission (ACRPC) asks all municipalities in the region to appoint representatives to the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC), an ad-hoc subcommittee of the Regional Planning Commission for a one-year term. Each municipality has one delegate and one alternate to the TAC.

The Transportation Advisory Committee was formed to provide local input and involvement in the transportation planning process. The TAC is responsible for updating the Regional Transportation Plan, recommending transportation-related planning studies and projects in the region, and commenting on transportation policy. The TAC also is responsible for establishing local priority for capital program projects that are in the project development process. The TAC works with regional planning commission staff, VTrans, and other agencies and officials to provide local input into the statewide transportation planning and project development process.

The TAC needs representation from each municipality in order to work effectively with the Vermont Agency of Transportation and others. Each year the TAC solicits input on local and regional transportation or traffic-related issues and problems.

The TAC meets eight to ten times a year (please click on latest Agenda to view remaining scheduled meeting dates) on the third Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. at the ACRPC Offices on 14 Seminary St. in Middlebury, VT.
