The Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) maintains a standing Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) to provide citizen perspective, participation and involvement in the CCTA’s $3 billion voter-approved Transportation Expenditure Plan and Growth Management Program. The CAC is comprised of 23 members: 20 are appointed by each of the 20 local jurisdictions within Contra Costa (the cities, towns, and the County); three “at- large” members are nominated by community-based stakeholder organizations within Contra Costa, and subsequently appointed to the CAC by CCTA.
To become a member of the CAC, you must reside within the local jurisdiction making the appointment, and your Council or Board must take formal action to confirm your membership on the Committee. At-large members should be residents of Contra Costa.
Meetings are scheduled for the fourth Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in the CCTA’s Walnut Creek offices at 2999 Oak Road, Suite 100. CAC members are appointed to serve for a four-year term without compensation. Members will, however, receive reimbursement for travel expenses to and from the CAC meetings.
