The Technical Committee is responsible for advising staff on preparation of the Long-Range Transportation Plan, the Transportation Improvement Program, and the Unified Planning Work Program. This committee is comprised of transportation subject-matter experts and stakeholders.
SUATS maintains a Public Participation Plan to ensure adequate opportunities for the public to express its views on transportation issues and to become active participants in the decision-making process. The Plan describes the opportunities that will be made available to members of the general public and other interested parties to participate in planning activities and decision‐making processes pertaining to the local expenditure of federal transportation funding. The Plan sets forth the guidelines that will be followed by SUATS for public notification, conduct of public meetings, and adoption of federally‐ required transportation plans and programs.
