Want to get involved? Openings on two MPO committees


 There are openings on two MPO committees for citizens interested in getting involved in transportation issues.  First, the Citizen's Advisory Committee (CAC) has openings for their Cape Coral and Sanibel seats.  If you're interested, contact the City Manager's office in the respective city. These seats are recommended by the City Council of the respective jurisdiction and then approved by the MPO Board.  Below is a description of the CAC:

Citizen's Advisory Committee

Consists of 23 appointed citizens who make recommendations to the MPO from the public's perspective on proposed long-range transportation plans, project plans, priorities for state and federal funding and other transportation issues.

Second, there is one open seat for a citizen member of the newly expanded Bicycle Pedestrian Coordinating Committee (BPCC).  Click here for our September post about this position.  Interested individuals should apply directly to the MPO staff and the BPCC was make the recommendations to the MPO Board for approval.  Below is a description of the BPCC:

 Bicycle Pedestrian Coordinating Committee

Consists of the local and state agency personnel and citizens who are responsible for bicycle and pedestrian planning for their agencies. It coordinates these agencies' bicycle/pedestrian planning activities, reviews provisions for pedestrians and cyclists in state and federal-aid surface transportation projects, and advises the MPO on the development of the bicycle and pedestrian element of its transportation plan and the programming of bicycle and pedestrian facilities.

If you have questions about either of these committees, contact Meghan Marion at
