Citizens' Advisory Council

About the CAC

In 2006, the General Assembly passed a bill creating the Red Line Citizens' Advisory Council (CAC). The bill established the membership of the CAC and its role in the Red Line planning process. The CAC is responsible for advising the MTA on impacts, opportunities and community concerns about the Red Line. The CAC values the comments and questions from those attending CAC meetings. In order to provide a substantive and orderly process for members of the public to have their questions answered, the CAC has adopted guidelines for public participation at CAC meetings.

The CAC has developed criteria to evaluate the Red Line's cost effectiveness, likelihood to obtain federal funding, impact on the communities it serves and whether it provides a quality transportation option.

The law that was passed by the Maryland General Assembly in 2006 establishing the CAC stated that the members of the CAC would be selected by the President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House, the Mayor of the City of Baltimore, and the Governor or, at the Governor's discretion, the Maryland Transit Administrator. The law also established that the Maryland Transit Administrator shall designate two co-chairs of the Advisory Council by selecting one from a list of two names provided by the President of the Senate, and one from a list of two names provided by the Speaker of the House.
