​​Citizens Transportation Commission

To ensure accountability, T2050 requires a 15-member Citizens Transportation Commission to represent various facets of the community and oversee the plan. The committee addresses street and transit needs, provides oversight on the expenditure of funds, and make recommendations on plan elements and other means of generating revenue for the plan going forward.
