Transportation agency seeking committee members

The Columbus Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, the transportation planning agency for the city and Bartholomew County, is seeking new members for its Citizens Advisory Committee.

The committee provides public input to CAMPO’s Policy Board, the agency’s decision-making body. The board’s goal is to make sure that a diverse group of transportation users and interests are represented on the citizens committee, including bicyclists, bus riders, walkers, motorists, freight shippers, people with disabilities, businesses, community organizations and others.

A committee of CAMPO board members and city planning department staff will select individuals for the citizens committee.
