OCTA Seeks Volunteers to Serve on Citizens Advisory Committee
Applications for advisory committee are being accepted through May 7
ORANGE – The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) is seeking community leaders to fill seats on the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC).
The 34-member committee meets throughout the year to provide input on a broad spectrum of transportation projects, studies and outreach activities and offers input to OCTA staff and board of directors.
Appointed by OCTA’s board of directors, the CAC is responsible for identifying opportunities for community input, recommending methods for obtaining public feedback on specific transportation issues, serving as a liaison between the public and OCTA and participating in roundtable discussions.
Candidates must be at least 18, live in Orange County and willing to participate for a two-year term. Potential committee members also should demonstrate a history of participating in community activities and transportation issues and be willing to dedicate at least 20 hours per year to OCTA meetings and activities.
Applications will be accepted through May 7 and are available at www.octa.net/cac.
The OCTA board of directors is expected to select the members by the end of June.
