The Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) CAC reviews transportation programs and plans throughout the County with the objective of advising and providing recommendations to the Authority's Board of Directors. The individual selected for this position must live in the unincorporated area of the County and be available to attend committee meetings on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 6:00 p.m. at the CCTA offices in Walnut Creek.
CCTA maintains its standing CAC in order to provide citizen perspective, participation and involvement in the $3 billion voter-approved Transportation Expenditure Plan and Growth Management Program. The CAC members have an opportunity to learn about and influence transportation and growth issues within Contra Costa County and in other jurisdictions through scheduled presentations by transportation experts, advocates and CCTA staff.
CCTA CAC is comprised of 23 members, 20 of whom are individually appointed by the 20 local governments within Contra Costa (The County, cities and towns); and, three "at-large" members nominated by community-based stakeholder organizations within Contra Costa, and subsequently appointed to the CAC by CCTA.
