Community Advisory Committee

The Community Advisory Committee ensures the public has the opportunity to review and evaluate all proposed transportation plans and programs. About half the Community Advisory Committee members are appointed by local governments, and the other half by the MPO Governing Board. The committee membership includes multimodal transportation advocates, as well as representatives from under-served communities and business interests. This composition encourages diversity of many kinds, including geographic, demographic and modal. This committee has a special advisory role to the Lake~Sumter MPO because it provides a necessary communication link between the MPO and the community it serves. The committee also solicits input and recommendations from other citizens groups and interested stakeholders when reviewing transportation plans and programs.
