We spend approximately 700 hours annually conducting and participating in public process. This is the cornerstone of all transportation program activities and we put an extra effort towards making citizen involvement meaningful and productive. This also includes bringing together civic leaders and professionals (often having diverse backgrounds) to participate, guide, and ultimately demonstrate action from this public process.

Meetings and Formats
To fulfill VTrans federal requirements on local consultation, each regional planning commission must use a Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) to meet these requirements. The TRORC Transportation Program is guided by the TAC which consists of representatives appointed from the Region’s towns. The TAC acts as a liaison between local communities and the Vermont Agency of Transportation, and provides local and regional input regarding transportation issues important to the region. The TAC serves in an advisory capacity to the Board of Commissioners.
Meeting topics include the TRORC transportation planning work program and the items it contains, the regional transportation project prioritization list that is annually submitted to VTrans, regional public transit issues, and the TRORC Regional Transportation Plan. These topics by no means encapsulate all of those at TAC meetings, as other local and regional issues are routinely discussed. TAC meetings are held regularly throughout the year and are open and free to the public.
