Open TPAC Seats
There are three citizen representative seats open on Metro's Transportation Policy Alternatives Committee. If you want to have an impact on regional transportation policy, this is a great opportunity to learn the nitty-gritty and express the values of the community to the technocrats:
Dear Interested Community Members:
The Transportation Policy Alternatives Committee (TPAC) has three seats open for community representation. TPAC provides technical input to the Joint Policy Advisory Committee on Transportation (JPACT) that, in turn, makes recommendations on transportation planning issues to the Metro Council.
TPAC seeks community representatives with a strong interest or expertise in transportation issues and who can commit to attending regular meetings held during normal working hours.
You may apply online at: http://www.metro-region.org/article.cfm?ArticleID=19626. To receive an application form by fax or mail, contact Kelsey Newell by phone at (503) 797-1916 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please let others know about this opportunity.
Applications are due Friday, October 12, 2007, by 5:00 p.m.

Is there a statewide or Willamette Valley-wide equivalent of TPAC? (I would like to get involved in some way but I'm outside the UGB).

Each ODOT region has an Area Commission on Transportation (ACT). I think they all have some citizen slots.

Too bad all the meetings are during regular working hours, so the average citizen can't participate. Only self-employed professionals and/or retired folks have that kind of flexibility.
