MTC Finalizes Guidance on TDA-3 Requirements
MTC released a final guidance on complying with requirements to receive TDA-3 funds. This was the end of a long-standing campaign to keep in place a requirement that recipients of TDA-3 funds maintain a Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) or utilize an appropriate countywide committee. This process started with advocacy last year that included key MTC committee and commission votes.
