|MTA moves forward with implementation of CCT Area Advisory Committees|
January 7, 2014
Thank you to those individuals who submitted a self-nomination form to participate in a CCT Area Advisory Committee (AAC). The process resulted in more than 70 submissions. The Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) and its project partners are working now to review the self nominations forms to determine the final AAC composition. AAC members will be notified in mid-January. In the meantime, the project team is working to organize AAC launch activities including a kick-off event.
As a reminder, the AACs were created by MTA to encourage involvement from the community regarding the design and construction of the transitway and the 14 proposed transit stations. Decisions on the system design will be informed through facilitated discussions at quarterly meetings. Possible topics of discussion include station design amenities, traffic management, transit operations, safety and security, transitway access and community interface. For more information on the AACs, please view our handout.
The Public Involvement team is also busy answering questions and providing updates on the project to the public. If you are interested in having the team attend a community event or to give a briefing or presentation, please contact:
