Metropolitan Council seeks applicants for Land Use and Transportation Board advisory committees

November 6, 2017 at 9:47 am Leave a comment

The Metropolitan Council encourages community members to apply for openings on several advisory committees. The application window is open for terms beginning in January 2018.

“Our advisory committees provide some of the best ways to influence regional decisions,” said Metropolitan Council Chair Alene Tchourumoff. “Each member partners with the Council members to provide a wide variety of viewpoints. I encourage people to apply – we need different voices at the table to assure our advisory committees reflect the communities we serve.”

Priority will be given by the Metropolitan Council to applications received by 5 p.m., Monday, Nov. 27. View detailed information & information on submitting interest.

The openings include 2 on topics of ongoing industry impact & interest:

Land Use Advisory Committee
Two spots are open on the Council’s Land Use Advisory Committee, which provides advice and assistance to the Council on regional land use and comprehensive planning, and in matters of metropolitan significance as requested by the Council.
The committee has at least 16 members – including members of the community and elected officials. At least half of the members must be elected officials, and there must be a member from each Metropolitan Council district.

Transportation Advisory Board (TAB)
The Transportation Advisory Board helps shape regional and state transportation plans. Every three years it adopts the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), which identifies which regional projects will receive federal funds. The board consists of 34 members, defined in state law, drawn from county and city elected officials, residents and business leaders, transportation providers, and representatives of state and regional agencies. The Council appoints a number of members to represent different aspects of transportation.
