Are you interested in serving as the District 6 representative on the DeKalb County Transit Master Plan Stakeholder Advisory Committee?
The Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) for the DeKalb County Transit Master Plan (DCTMP) will be established as a voluntary advisory group that will advise County officials and DCTMP project consultants as they work toward developing a guiding document to support more detailed transit planning and expansion in DeKalb County. This group, of approximately fifty individuals, is expected to meet 3-4 times over the course of the planning process and will be tasked with the following:
• Previewing existing public processes related to transit services;
• Visioning the potential benefits of harnessing the economic and community-building power of transit; and
• Helping to refine other community engagement strategies intended to elicit broader public input on this project.
Additionally, SAC members will utilize their influence to support and encourage community participation in the various processes and tactics that will be employed to garner public feedback. In this way, they will serve informally as project ambassadors. The SAC seek to be inclusive and reflect a diversity of perspectives.
