It shall be the function of the CAC to:
1. Assist the River to Sea TPO in the formulation of goals and objectives for shaping the urban environment
2. Conduct public information programs
3. Provide effective citizen review of the preliminary findings and recommendations of transportation planning studies throughout the planning area
4. Assist in other functions as deemed desirable by the River to Sea TPO Board

B. The CAC shall be comprised of thirty (30) voting representatives. Each elected official serving on the TPO Board, including the non-voting members of the Small City Alliance, shall appoint in writing one (1) representative to serve on the committee. Also serving as a voting member shall be one (1) representative from the Volusia County School Board, one (1) representative from Flagler County School Board, one (1) representative from Votran and one (1) representative from Flagler County Transit acting as the Community Transportation Coordinators (CTC).

B. One alternate may be appointed for each CAC position. Alternates must be appointed by the TPO Board member, in writing, and may participate in the meeting and vote only in the absence of the primary member.

C. Voting members and their alternates shall serve at the pleasure of their respective TPO Board member for a period of time to be determined by the River to Sea TPO Board member that is being represented. To ensure continuous representation, a voting member of the CAC may continue to serve beyond the term of the appointing board member until a replacement has been appointed.

D. Any vacancies in membership shall be filled in the same manner as the initial appointment.

E. Each member is expected to demonstrate his/her interest in the CAC’s activities through participation in the scheduled meetings except for reasons of an unavoidable nature. In cases of unavoidable nature, each representative should ensure his/her alternate attends. No more than three (3) consecutive absences will be allowed by the representative or alternate. Should a member have three (3) consecutive absences, excused or unexcused, and/or three (3) meetings, unexcused in a calendar year, a letter will be sent to the board member that designated the CAC member informing them of the attendance record.

F. Municipalities and agencies, in selecting their non-voting representatives, shall name only those technically qualified persons employed by a government or governmental agency.

B. Officers shall be elected by a majority of the members present at the June meeting and shall serve a term of one year, starting on July 1st of each year.

D. The Chairperson shall preside at all meetings, and in the event of his/her absence or at his/her direction, the Vice Chairperson shall assume the powers and duties of the Chairperson. In addition, the Chairperson shall serve on the River to Sea TPO Board as a non-voting member and attend the regular monthly TPO Board meetings in order to represent the discussions and actions of the CAC.


A. Monthly meetings of the CAC shall be held on a regularly scheduled day, time and place approved by the CAC membership. Regular meeting dates and times may be changed by action of the CAC to accommodate holidays and/or other activities that may interrupt a scheduled meeting.

B. Special and/or emergency meetings may be called by the Chairperson or by initiative of two or more members of the CAC petitioning the Chairperson. At least two (2) business days notice must be provided to the members and alternates for special or emergency meetings.

C. A minimum of nine (9) voting members of the CAC must be present to constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. Once a quorum has been determined at the start of the meeting, items on the agenda may be voted on. The action of a simple majority of the members present during the time of a vote shall be considered an act of the CAC. If at any point during the meeting attendance drops to less than nine (9) voting members, no further actions will be taken by the committee; however, presentations and other business may continue.
