About the Committee 

The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) was established to advise, provide expertise, and assess FAMPO’s plans and programs. 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 FAMPO Policy Committee based on current technical sufficiency, accuracy and completeness of studies, plans, and programs.
