After 20 years, Robert Landman resigned as North Hampton’s representative to the Technical Advisory Committee (“TAC”) of the Rockingham Planning Commission’s MPO. Bob’s tireless work on behalf of the Town went unnoticed by many but it is a model of the kind of work that betters our community and our region. The Select Board thanks Mr. Landman for his years of hard work and dedication.
Mr. Landman’s departure creates an opportunity for service by someone else. What is the MPO and the TAC?
The MPO leads in the development of the region's long-range transportation plan and short-range Transportation Improvement Program and contributes to ongoing conversations about issues such as land use, economic development, climate change and the environment, safety and security, and public health.
In cooperation with the New Hampshire Department of Transportation, the MPO works to plan, prioritize, and select transportation projects for federal funding appropriated through the United States Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration and Federal Transit Administration; and is responsible to for ensuring the region is in compliance with federal planning requirements and national ambient air quality standards.
The TAC is a standing committee of the MPO. The main purposes of the TAC are to provide technical guidance and recommenda¬tions to the RPC staff and the Policy Committee concerning transportation issues that have a bearing on the MPO's 3C's planning process, to review major work products prepared by staff as part of the transportation planning program, to provide a forum for individual members to bring transportation related issues and concerns to the attention of the MPO staff and Policy Committee, and to advise the staff and Policy Committee on major transportation issues in the region. The TAC does not establish policies for the MPO, but may make both technical and policy recommen¬dations to the organization.
One doesn’t need any specialized knowledge to serve on the TAC. It is technical in the nature of its work, but it is a “learn as you go” proposition.
