METRO Gold Line - Committees

Three committees provide input and direction for the Gold Line BRT Project, which is led by the Metropolitan Council in collaboration with the Minnesota Department of Transportation, Washington County, Ramsey County and the five cities along the route.

  • Corridor Management Committee (CMC)
  • Community and Business Advisory Committee (CBAC)
  • Technical Advisory Committee (TAC)

 

Corridor Management Committee

The Corridor Management Committee (CMC) is made up of elected officials and community leaders who were appointed by Chair Alene Tchourumoff to advise the Metropolitan Council, Ramsey County and Washington County on the design and construction of the Gold Line BRT Project. The CMC will use technical and community input to leverage opportunities and address issues throughout each stage of the proposed project including environmental review, preliminary design, final design and construction.
