The Harbor Bridge Citizens’ Advisory Committee (CAC) is an advisory group composed of people within the community who represent a broad range of views, backgrounds, and interests. The committee serves in an advisory role to the Harbor Bridge project team and acts as a valuable link between TxDOT and the community throughout the EIS and schematic (preliminary engineering design) for this project.
Criteria considered by TxDOT for CAC membership include:
- Broad representation of stakeholder interests
- Geographical representation within the project area
- Demonstrated interest in the Harbor Bridge project
- Willingness to make time commitment needed for CAC participation.
Members can nominate themselves or be nominated by others. TxDOT makes the final decision on membership based on the criteria described above.
The mission of the CAC is as follows:
- To receive project team reports on the progress of the project in relationship to established schedules and project milestones.
- To promote public awareness and understanding of the project
- To advise TxDOT on the community’s preferences regarding the project as well as the best approach for communicating with the public.
- The CAC meets at least three times a year. Meetings are led by a facilitator and are open to the public. Individuals who are not CAC members are welcome to provide input during a public comment period at the end of each meeting.
The first CAC meeting was held on January 11, 2011 and the second meeting was held on June 21, 2012. A third meeting is anticipated in the fall of 2012. Dates for future meetings will be announced on the website as they become available.
