Planning Committee

CDTC's Planning Committee has been delegated by the Policy Board to develop recommendations for action about plans and programs in the Capital Region. The bulk of CDTC's work is undertaken by the Planning Committee and has the delegated authority to approve small-scale changes to CDTC's work program or to the Transportation Improvement Program. Planning Committee members are primarily the designated technical staff to the CDTC Policy Board members.
