Applications are now open for people who live, work or study in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Belcarra or Anmore to join TransLink's new Public Advisory Committee (PAC).
The committee, according to a press release from TransLink, will provide community perspective into the recently initiated Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan.
Those interested in joining can find details and an application form at translink. ca/nesatp. Applications, submitted online or through the mail, are due by March 18.
TransLink's area transit plans identify long-term visions and near-term priorities for an area's transit network, and are undertaken for seven areas within Metro Vancouver. The plans consider community input, current and projected land use and growth and transportation-related data findings, such as automated passenger counts. The Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan will coordinate transit planning with municipal land use planning while considering the future of the area.
Stakeholders and the public will have a variety of chances to provide feedback during the 18-month process, including through public consultation events and online surveys.
