Who is the TAC?


MPO Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC)

Who is the MPO TAC (Transportation Advisory Committee)?

In August 2006, the PACOG Board amended Section 6 of the PACOG bylaws to create the Transportation Advisory Commission (TAC) composed of two standing committees: the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) and the Transportation Technical Committee (TTC). The reorganized CAC is composed of nine members serving two-year terms beginning in January of odd-numbered years:

  • Two (2) from the City Planning and Zoning Commission
  • Two (2) from the Pueblo County Planning Commission
  • One (1) from the 2020 Commission
  • One (1) from PEDCO
  • Three (3) at-large citizen appointees

The TAC regularly meets on the second Thursday of each month to review and make recommendations to the PACOG Board about regional transportation planning, programming, and funding issues.
