  • Maintain and improve the strong public engagement record of Metroplan by providing direct input into the decision-making levels of the regional planning process.
  • Educate central Arkansas on transportation and planning matters and encourage best practices that would advance the region's vision for the future.

 

Qualifications:

  1. A genuine desire to be a part of central Arkansas’ progress, and to have input into the decisions affecting the region’s transportation, economy, and livability.
  2. Ability to commit to a regular meeting schedule. (Note: Committee meeting dates and times have not yet been established, and will be determined by preferences of applicants.)

The Regional Advisory Committees are:

  1. Economic Vitality – deals with matters pertaining to industry, commerce, workforce and regional-scale economic growth as it relates to transportation and planning.
  2. Transportation Systems – broadly encompasses safety, efficiency, technology, and design, in context with the natural and physical environments.
