planning & projects: TBARTA MPOS Chairs Coordinating Committee

TBARTA Metropolitan Planning Organization Chairs Coordinating Committee (CCC) Board

The TBARTA MPOs CCC Board conducts two meetings a year, one in the summer and one in the fall. Every year, the Board receives public comment and adopts the West Central Florida Regional Roadway Network, Transportation Regional Incentive Program Priority Projects, and Regional Multi-Use Trail Priority Projects. The Board transmits these priorities to the District 1 & 7 offices of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). The Board also makes a yearly recommendation to the TBARTA Board for the TBARTA Regional Priority Projects.

The Board is composed of local MPO Board members, regional planning councils, transportation partners, and FDOT. The voting members of the Board are the MPO Chairs for each respective MPO represented in the TBARTA MPOs CCC, which include Forward Pinellas, Hernando/Citrus MPO, Hillsborough MPO, Pasco County MPO, Polk County TPO, and Sarasota/Manatee MPO. The non-voting members of the Board include the FDOT Secretaries from District 1 & 7, as well as transportation and planning professionals from the regional planning councils, TBARTA, and the Florida Turnpike Enterprise.
