Technical Advisory Committee

The HRMPO Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) is comprised of city, county, town, and agency staff with expertise in planning, engineering and related fields. The primary responsibility of the TAC is to conduct technical reviews and analysis regarding all work activity of the UPWP, LRTP, TIP and any related issues and programs as specified by HRMPO’s Policy Board, and to advise the Policy Board on technical issues concerning transportation.

The TAC reviews and makes recommendations to the Policy Board on all plans and programs to be adopted, conducts special studies at the request of the Policy Board and generally provides expert transportation advice to the Policy Board. There are sixteen voting members on the TAC and they meet on the first Thursday of the month as needed.
