Citizens Advisory Committee

The Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) is the committee that has been established to solicit public participation into the local transportation planning process.  Upon the CAC’s review of products and plans, the Committee forwards a recommendation to the Technical Advisory Committee as to whether or not the item should be approved, rejected, or modified.

CAC Bylaws

The CAC's membership is drawn from diverse citizen groups or organizations within the current Sioux Falls Metropolitan Planning Organization boundaries.
