Technical Advisory Committee

The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) was established to advise and provide expertise for the MPO’s decision-making process and to provide valuable assessment of MPO plans and programs. The TAC is comprised primarily of engineers, planners, and other professionals who represent local governments and transportation agencies. These individuals serve in an advisory capacity by providing recommendations to the MPO Board based on current technical sufficiency, accuracy and completeness of studies, plans, and programs.

The TAC meets on the first Monday of every month at 9:30 a.m. in the GWRC/FAMPO Conference Room, located at 406 Princess Anne Street, Fredericksburg, VA.  These meetings are open to the public and public participation is encouraged.

Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability or family status.  Persons who require special accommodations under the American with Disabilities Act or persons who require translation services (free of charge) should contact the GWRC/FAMPO at 540-373-2890 or fampo@gwregion.org at least four days prior to the meeting.  If hearing impaired, telephone 1-800-273-7545 (TDD).
