Really, I'm not trying to monopolize this blog this week, there's just a lot going on in transportation. And I wanted to spread the word about an opportunity for you to help determine the future of transportation in Spokane, whether it's bicycling or otherwise.
The Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) is a citizen group responsible for advising the SRTC Board on all SRTC activities. That means, as a member of the TAC, you would have input on which transportation projects to consider priority; which projects receive federal, state and local funding; the direction that transportation studies take; what kind of coffee SRTC should serve at meetings and lots more.
There's a ton of potential here folks, and all you have to do is show up once a month and read the meeting packet in advance. There's no pay, but you get rewarded with the satisfaction of knowing you're helping to shape local government. And occasional treats at the meetings.
So if that's something you're interested in, and you can make a commitment to meeting once a month, go to the SRTC website for more info on the TAC, and the application. Click the link, then scroll to the bottom of the page. You can do it.
