To assist with this planning effort, we have formed the following committees:
• Policy Board
• Transportation Advisory Committee
• Citizens Advisory Board
The Policy Board will be responsible to designate and approve membership on the Transportation Advisory Committee and Citizens Advisory Board; approve RTPO budgets, work plans, and policies; approve and adopt Regional Transportation Plan and Public Participation Plan; and perform other policy making decisions. Our Executive Board will serve as the Policy Board. Click here for Executive Board Meeting Dates.
The Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) will provide a broad base of technical expertise for utilization by the Policy Board, Citizen’s Advisory Board, OMEGA’s Executive Director and staff. The Transportation Advisory Board will review, conduct investigations, and provide recommendations to the Executive Board as requested. Membership includes County Engineers, Regional Planning Directors, Economic Development Professionals, and representatives from Cities, Villages, Transit Agencies, Eastgate Regional Council of Governments, ODOT District 5 and 11, and others as may be designated by the Policy Board.
The TAC meets the second Wednesday of every other month at 10:30 am at ODOT District 11, 2201 Reiser Road in New Philadelphia, Ohio. Click here for TAC meeting dates, agenda, and other relevant information.
The Citizens Advisory Board (CAB) will consider methods and techniques of maximizing and insuring citizen representation and participation in the planning, deliberations, and activities of the RTPO. Click here for CAB meeting dates.
