The RTPO Committees
In addition to the Tri County Economic Development District (TEDD) Board of Directors that acts as the NEW RTPO “Policy Board,” there are two functioning committees of the NEW RTPO.
The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) reports to the TEDD Board in regard to regional transportation planning and other related issues. The TAC is made up of county engineers, municipal and tribal planners, and representation from WSDOT. In 2011, a Transit Committee was organized in order to address transit-specific concerns throughout the region; the Transit Committee reports to the TAC and is made up of select TAC members as well as other regional transit providers and users.
