Most decisions that the MRMPO makes must go through an official approval process. Amendments, projects, programs, and other agenda items are reviewed by the Citizen Advisory Committee and the Technical Advisory Committee before the Policy Committee makes the final decision.
All MRMPO committee meetings are public and may be announced through news media, advertising, direct notice, and web site postings. Material for all committee meetings is available on-line and each meeting reserves time for public comment.
Citizens Advisory Committee
The Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) consists of appointed citizens from five citizen involvement areas and four interest categories who make recommendations to the MPO from the public’s perspective on transportation plans, project plans, priorities for state and federal funding, and other transportation issues.
The CAC meets every month on the second Thursday at 2:00 p.m. at the Courtyard Conference Room at the Grants Pass City Hall, 101 NW A Street, Grants Pass, OR.
Technical Advisory Committee
The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) is composed of planning and public works staff from the MRMPO member jurisdictions. TAC members review and approve transportation planning related policies and programs prior to formal adoption by the Policy Committee. The TAC meets on the first Thursday of each month at 1:30 p.m. in the Courtyard Conference Room, 101 NW ‘A’ Street, Grants Pass City Hall, in Grants Pass, Oregon
The Middle Rogue MPO Policy Committee (PC) meets on the third Thursday of each month. Meetings normally begin at 2:30 p.m. and are held at the Courtyard Conference Room at Grants Pass City Hall, 101 NW ‘A’ Street in Grants Pass, Oregon.
Current transportation issues are discussed and status reports on transportation studies and projects are given. Policy actions are taken that include adoption of the Transportation Improvement Program and Unified Planning Work Program, revisions to the documents or the Regional Transportation Plan, and adoption of resolutions related to current transportation issues
